There is no doubt that 2011 was a difficult year for a lot of us here is Las Vegas, in fact Las Vegas was more or less the poster child for the worst economy in the Nation. While some decided to move on for greener pastures, a lot of us, Par 3 included, call Las Vegas home and are determined to stay here help this city rebound. We didn’t set any new records in 2011 but we did see a little growth in a declining market. We believe this was possible because we offer a great product and put so much focus on customer service- from our recycling facility to our dumpster rentals. We expect excellence from our people and our customers recognize this commitment.
Par 3 Recycling has built a solid reputation among builders, demolition experts, landscapers and hotel / casinos for consistently delivering our dumpsters on time. Our customers know they can count on us to deliver when our competition continues to drop the ball. Las Vegas is a 24 hour city, there’s never a dull moment in the Entertainment Capital of the World. To us this means two things, the first is you can always find a good place to eat, no matter the time of day. The second is that the demand for service never stops, night or day, weekdays or weekends, this town keeps working. Luckily, Par 3 Recycling understands this demanding schedule and sees it as opportunity rather than an obstacle. Not all jobs run 7 to 4, in fact most don’t, jobs generally run around the clock and some only run in the off hours in order to accommodate the client’s needs. In addition to irregular hours, a lot of jobs have very limited times when deliveries, or in our case, dumpsters can be dropped and picked up. Hospitals, schools, casinos, and night clubs are usually limited on space and time and keeping both of those under control can make or break a general contractor’s reputation. Par 3 Recycling can and will make drops and pickups when and where the customer needs them. Try getting that same service from our competitors, more and more people are making the switch to Par 3 because they know they can count on us. We deliver.
Mulch is a protective cover placed over the soil to retain moisture, reduce erosion, provide nutrients, and suppress weed growth and seed germination. Mulching in gardens and landscaping mimics the leaf cover that is found on forest floors.
Materials used as mulches vary and depend on a number of factors. Use takes into consideration availability, cost, appearance, the effect it has on the soil — including chemical reactions and pH, durability, combustibility, rate of decomposition, how clean it is.
Do you know how long a glass bottle takes to decompose or how much junk mail you throw away? Get these answers and more with our Recycling Fun Facts.
- A used aluminum can is recycled and back on the grocery shelf as a new can, in as little as 60 days.
- An aluminum can that is thrown away will still be a can 500 years from now!
- There is no limit to the amount of times aluminum can be recycled.
- Recycling a single run of the Sunday New York Times would save 75,000 trees.
- The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. Most is packaging and junk mail.
- Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution!
- A modern glass bottle would take 4000 years or more to decompose — and even longer if it’s in the landfill.
- Mining and transporting raw materials for glass produces about 385 pounds of waste for every ton of glass that is made. If recycled glass is substituted for half of the raw materials, the waste is cut by more than 80%.
- Every year, each American throws out about 1,200 pounds of organic garbage that can be composted.
- A typical family consumes 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk, and 26 gallons of bottled water a year. That’s a lot of containers — make sure they’re recycled!

One of the most important practices a golf course superintendent uses to maintain great putting surfaces is hollow tine aerification, a process in which holes are punched in the greens, the cores are removed and the holes are filled with sand. In Las Vegas, this process is generally performed in late spring and again in the fall at during overseed.
The conditions have been perfect for growing plants that have abundant color in Las Vegas this spring. Everywhere you look, the spring color has done very well, thanks to the rain we received and the cooler than normal temperatures. Even the desert is greener than normal. Continue reading
