COMMUNITY PREPAREDNESS

Due to the furlough our FEMA liaison is unable to make tomorrow night’s Community Resilience meeting. Instead, TDN Emergency Manager Kymmie Scott will present “Beyond tsunamis and floods… thinking about ALL hazards that may threaten the Nation”, followed by a brief talk by Mary Dorman of State Farm Insurance on how much insurance people should actually carry on their home to be truly prepared.

Come learn about the Emergency Management Program at Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation and have your questions answered with TDN Emergency Manager Kymmie Scott and Emergency Services Coordinator Tessa LaFazio

FALL CEAN-UP REMOVES 56 TONS OF TRASH

The purpose of the Spring and Fall Clean-up events is to offer Tribal citizens the opportunity to clean-up their outdoor yards on Tolowa aboriginal territory. We want to discourage Tribal citizens from storing every-day household garbage just to dispose of at the clean-ups.

This Fall Clean-up received a total of about 56 tons of solid waste and recyclable material from Tribal citizens. A total of 163 vehicle and trailer loads of solid waste were brought during this two-day event with 50 loads on Thursday and 113 loads on Saturday. The Tribe’s Public Works and Facilities Department and Information Technology (IT) Department also disposed of some solid waste and recyclable electronics at the Clean-up.

About 9 tons of material is destined to be recycled and included about 40 yards of metal and electronics weighing 4.2 tons, 35 televisions and computer screens weighing 0.8 tons, 48 tires with rims weighing 1.9 tons, 61 tires without rims weighing 1.8 tons, 25 gallons of motor oil weighing 185 pounds and 42 compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs.

About 47 tons of non-recyclable material is destined for the landfill and includes about 258 yards of solid waste weighing 45 tons, 21 mattresses and box-springs weighing 0.5 tons and 30 furniture pieces weighing 1.6 tons.

If you are interested in working at the 2019 Spring Clean-up Event contact the Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO), Director, Zackary Chapman at 707-487-9255 extension 1165.

For a list of businesses that take solid waste and recyclables, contact the Natural Resources Department, Tribal Resource Specialist, Kagat McQuillen at 707-487-9255 extension 1155.
