Green Door Recycling and Central Energy Savers are now The Green Door!

We are excited to announce a change in management: Green Door Recycling and Central Energy Savers have joined forces with Interdependent Web to provide you a wider variety of green-living services with the same hometown, personal touch you have come to expect. We are keeping the same distinctive white pickup truck and green trailer, the same cheerful green plastic bins, the same friendly employees, and the same great curbside service; we are just adding on additional services. We are more "conveniently green" than ever! To learn more about the change, click "Read More" below -- to learn about all our services, click "Services" above!

Announcing Attic Report Card!

We are pleased to announce that we are now providing the Attic Report Card service to the Emporia area! This simple inspection of attic insulation takes only about 30 minutes and is offered free of charge or obligation. The completed report includes referrals to trusted contractors who can improve your attic's efficiency. Rural electric coop members can get their improvements financed for no money down; we are working on a similar deal for Westar customers.

End of year recycling statistics, 2014

2014 saw the city's recycling plan advance toward reality, with an expected implementation date of June 1, 2015 at no additional cost to residential customers.  We continued to lose customers in anticipation of the city's service, with the result that we collected 4% less by weight than in 2013.  We expect our tonnage to increase dramatically in 2015 when the city ends its own commercial pickups, primarily paper from schools and glass from bars.

Recycling is part of the lifestyle at Emporia Presbyterian Manor, where residents have about 60 daily newspaper subscriptions, plus weekly and monthly magazines.  That paper adds up to more than 350 pounds in a typical week.
