Ion said getting people to separate gar
bage could be difficult because they don’t want
to bother with it
“There does appear to be a prevailing atti
tude of ‘out of sight out of mind,’’’ he sail.
“They want the garbage to disappear.”
But Ken Holm, assistant manager for prim
ing and duplicating at the University of Ne
braska-Lincoln, said separating the trash at its
source doesn’t always work.
Because the printing department goes
through so much paper in one day, Holm said,
having different receptacles for waste products
Right, now there isn’t enough room in die
printing department or on the loading dock at
Nebraska Hall for large numbers of recep
tacles, he said.
Hanlon said that even if waste products are
separated properly, finding markets foe recy
clable products could be a problem.
Because of a “flood” of newspaper collec
tion drives, he said, the market for recycling
newsprint is now saturated.
Until newspapers start using more recycled
newsprint or other markets for recycled news
print are developed, he said, recycling it won’t
Recycled newsprint, a combination of re
cycled and virgin paper, is not any more expen
sive than virgin newsprint and would be the
simplest way to create a market for recycling
newspapers, Hanlon said.
But some recycled paper is more expensive
than virgin paper, he said, which creates an
other problem for recycling.
- For example, a fine-grade, 20-pound paper
will be more expensive recycled than virgin, he
Holm said he only knows of one paper
company in Lincoln that sells recycled paper.
Firm that company, he said, one thousand
sheets of recycled paper cost $40 while the
same amount of virgin paper costs only $6.50.
He said that minimizing the cost of purchas
ing recycled paper is important for providing a
market in which people can recycle.
Improving public opinion of recycled prod
ucts is just as important as keeping the costs
low, Hanlon said.
“The general attitude in the public is that if
it’s not new, it’s not worth anything,” he said.
One new industry that Hanlon said he is
trying to develop in Lincoln is recycling plas
Plastic is difficult to recycle, he said, be
cause there are at least 25 different types of
plastic resins that are used to make different
Many products are made from a combina
tion of different types of resins, he said, which
makes recycling them difficult.
“You can’t make a pure, recycled plastic
product,” he said. “You have to make a mixed

be is having a difficult time getting a plastic
recycling industry started in Lincoln.
' Another reason developing new recycling
industries in the state is difficult Hanlon said,
is a lack of solid, statewide leadership.
Without state support in technology and
financing, he said, recycling will be difficult to
establish in the state because many recyclable
products are too difficult to handle on a local
level, especially in small communities.

entrepreneurs who had what they thought were
great products and wanted to know where they
could sell them, he said.
‘In reality it turned out that they needed a
lot more assistance than just where they could
sell it,” he said.
Among other things, the center ended up
providing packaging help, determining the
productssnelf stability and whether the prod
ucts were properly labeled, he said.
Although the center has helped some com
panies and entrepreneurs create new products
or modify existing ones, Neumeisier said, the
