Dale Frazier Founder of G.O.A.L. (Greenbelt Overhaul Alliance of Levittown) Dies at 58

Levittown Environmentalist and G.O.A.L. Founder Dale Frazier Dies at 58

I am saddened to report today the loss of a great friend, teacher and mentor Dale Frazier. As I write this article I think back to how I met Dale and the impact that he has had, not just on the Dale Frazier Levittown G.O.A.L.environment but on everything around him. I remember him making sure that we had wood to burn for heat and a way to cook when we all lost power during Hurricane Sandy. He made sure that everyone was able to get through tough times and I always will remember that he was always there for anyone in need. He volunteered for many other things; for example he volunteered to help serve at the Masonic Temple Thanksgiving dinners for the last 25 years. I honestly don’t know where he got the time or energy to accomplish so many things and do them with heart.

Dale Frazier also accomplished something that many will never do in a lifetime. He left a legacy–now and hopefully for many generations to come. We can look at the Levittown greenbelts and see patches of woods with native trees and wildflowers. When people pass, sometimes a tree is planted in their memory. In his passing Dale left us with a little piece of nature to remember him. I feel fortunate to have been his friend and a G.O.A.L. volunteer.  Dale had a way of getting people involved and, thanks to him, Levittown is a bit nicer for the people and the wildlife in the area.

Thanks to my friend Dale I am involved with the Bristol Township EAC and admin of this blog. He will be missed but most importantly he will be remembered for all his hard work and all he has done to improve the environment and the attitude of the Levittown and Bristol township community.

May Dale R.I.P.

Bristol Township Special Yard Waste Collection

Bristol Township Special Yard Waste Collection Next Week

Due to late fall weather, the Township will hold a special yard waste collection next week.

All leaves and yard waste left for collection must be at the curb by Monday, December 15 at 7 a.m. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected. Please note these guidelines:

Place yard waste in rigid container or biodegradable paper bags
– Branches must be cut into lengths less than 4 feet long
– Branches should be tied or bundled with string or twine

Depending on the volume of yard waste, it may take approximately one week to complete the collection. If the collection is missed, yard waste can still be disposed of as trash in the 95-gallon green refuse container.

Home Composting/ Special Yard Waste CollectionAs an green alternative, residents are encouraged to try chopping up moderate amounts of leaves with a mulching lawnmower.

After next week, yard waste collection will resume in April 2015.

Northwest wildlife refuges to phase out pesticide

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Federal wildlife refuges in the Northwest and Hawaii will phase out a class of pesticides that are chemically similar to nicotine because they pose a threat to bees and other pollinators key to crop growth.
The region covering Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Hawaii is the first in the agency to ban neonicotinoids. There is room for exemptions, but the goal is to phase out the pesticides by January 2016, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokeswoman Miel Corbett said Monday. Read Full Article
