Dumpster dump out complete: Recycling continues at Sealy News


Carry all that your vehicles can retain, as the recycling dumpster at The Sealy News has finally been emptied and replaced. 

After speaking with Tascon Industries, the recycling company who removes fully loaded bins from the newspaper’s parking lot, Sealy News Publisher Karen Lopez said a driver is on the way following a Friday morning conversation with their representatives. 

“The Sealy News enjoys being a partner with our community by providing a way to “Keep Sealy Beautiful” and also helping to make available a need to our dear seniors,” Lopez said of the recycling endeavor. “Thank you to everyone who participates in achieving this wonderful undertaking.” 

Many Sealy News customers and city residents stopped by the office multiple times over the last few weeks with items to discard but found the dumpster full each time, which understandably can be frustrating. 

The dumpster remained stuffed for those few weeks as Tascon experienced employment issues that prevented them from upholding their monthly scheduled trips to Sealy. They are the only recycling entity within Houston and surrounding areas that deal in community recycling of dumpster-sized pickups. 

The Sealy News provides a space on the left side of the parking lot for dumpster storage but there is not much more involvement on the part of the office aside from operating as a go-between contact. 

Helping One Another- Meals on Wheels is the sole beneficiary — as well as Austin County residents — for the communal recycling efforts. HOA receives a monthly check based upon final weigh-in of the dumpster’s contents once they are carted off and taken to Tascon’s site. With that money, HOA, in turn, has more financial means to continue aiding senior citizens across the county. Five days per week, volunteers deliver meals to more than 100 senior citizens in Bellville, Bleiberville, New Ulm, San Felipe, Sealy and Wallis.

The Sealy News appreciates the patience residents have shown since the beginning of this month. Watch The Sealy News Facebook site for updates on when the recycle bin is emptied.
