Miami, FL – May 7, 2011 - Reggae Report, the award-winning reggae magazine, is launching a pledge campaign on Kickstarter.com to raise funds for the creation of its online Archive. Reggae Report publisher M. Peggy Quattro celebrates her 30 years by announcing the Kickstarter project. “Reggae Report is an important and valuable part of Reggae history,” says Quattro, “and Kickstarter is the perfect creative arts platform to make this Archive a reality.”

For those who pledge financial support, Quattro offers a range of incredible rewards! Backers can choose from a Founding Member Certificate, vintage t-shirts and posters, CDs or DVDs, exclusive Bob Marley art, VIP access to Bayside Rocks! 2011, or an action-packed Kingston trip for two with MPeggyQ for an inside look at Reggae’s roots they will never forget! Many of these rewards are limited and exclusive to Reggae Report’s 30-year collection, and everyone who pledges support will be listed as a Founding Member on the Archive website.

Broward County residents are encouraged to recycle their used electronic equipment and dispose of household hazardous waste in an environmentally safe manner - and now that's easier than ever. 

Thanks to a partnership between Broward County Waste and Recycling Services and Partner Cities and Miramar, a free drop-off event will be held on Sunday, January 9, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 15700 Pembroke Road (Silver Shores Park). 

Residents can dispose of the following items safely and for free: household hazardous waste, including compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent tubes, paint, solvents, motor oil, pesticides, household chemicals, lawn and pool chemicals, mercury thermometers, propane tanks and fire extinguishers.
Holiday celebrations and gift giving mean lots of extra waste and recyclables for collection by Miami-Dade County’s waste collection crews and recycling service providers.  To help waste collection and recycling customers manage their waste, the Miami-Dade Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) offers the following tips:
 
Recycle as much as possible.  The County’s single-stream recycling program offers a convenient way to manage extra holiday waste.  The program accepts the following:
 
·         Glass, aluminum, steel and narrow-neck plastic food and beverage containers (e.g., soda, water, juice, milk, eggnog, and cider containers).  Aluminum and plastic beverage containers can be flattened to save space in the cart.
Beginning Monday, December 27, 2010 through January 7, 2011, residents who receive curbside waste collection service from the Miami-Dade Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) are encouraged to recycle their natural Christmas trees by taking them to one of the County’s 13 Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers (TRCs) or two Home Chemical Collection Centers.  
 
All trees brought in for recycling must be free of lights, tinsel, ornaments and tree stands.  The trees will be converted into mulch, available free to residents on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in mid-January, 2011.
