Recycling and Facilities Logistics update

by on Feb.17, 2014, under Business

As of 2/16/2014 Midsouth Makers has halted all recycling efforts except for aluminum cans. The effort required to haul and receive payout, and lack of room was the deciding factor. Please place aluminum cans neatly in the red tape area of the shop. Please do not crush cans. They are easier to handle at the recycler when they have not been crushed

Donations:

Even though we have ceased recycling, we are still taking donations. If a member is donating/bringing in a donations, it is his/her responsibility to break down and put away donations. If unsure about the intrinsic value or where to put an item, place it in the red tape area in the shop.

Salvage Parts and Items:

If you have walked into the space recently, you will find we have bins. Lots and lots of bins now! Please keep these organized. There are some spare bins, if we need more categories. Just make sure to label the bin!

This is a work in progress and there are plans on expanding expanding the bin storage and creating custom drawer shelving unit to house the bins.

Shop Tables:

Just a friendly reminder that all items on the work bench near the door should only be there for 1 week max. I myself am guilty of this. If you have some projects that have been lingering there for a while, please complete or pick them up. If you leave a project on this bench, please make note of your name and the date last worked on. Abandoned projects will be filed away in the trash bin. This is a necessary evil to create room for newer projects being fabricated in the space.

Pegboard/Tool Chest:

The space has gained another 4×8 foot section of pegboard. The pegboard and tool chest is for storing tools and tool consumables (blades, sandpaper, ie) only.

Gray Hanging Wall Bins:

These are for fasteners and tiny loose hardware items that don’t need a large bin. These are a current work in progress. If a bin is needed for fasteners or tiny hardware items, please label the bin with the label maker.
