Note the iridescence (also known as goniochromism) on the wings. It's the same phenomenon as seen in soap bubbles.

City of Midland – Public Information

These events may or may not be specific events for children, however much of what the city posts is relevant to families. Well informed community members make for a safer and stronger city for kids!

It is Utilities Month at the City of Midland and today we are highlighting our Assistant Utilities Director, Cory Moose.
Prior to working with the City, Cory spent four years with the U.S. Marine Corps, including two deployments to Iraq.

Why doesn’t Butts Recycling take glass? Glass is infinitely recyclable? There is nowhere in town (besides target, although I’m not sure they really recycle it) to take glass. It’s piling up in my garage!

The city of Midland doe6make recycling ease at all. All the recycling bins were removed. Only one place left by the post office on Smith. So how is that making Midland beautiful? Why can't Midland try to be like Houston for example where

Sorry, not done. In Houston, Katy, etc, the recyclables are picked up from homes once a week. So will be nice to try up here to encourage people to recycle. Not to many will take the time to drive 15 plus miles to one center that probably will be full to the rim. So disappointing 😕

You have learned about how to recycle plastics and cardboard, now learn about paper.

Remember the only recycling item that should ever be in a plastic bag is shredded paper and that goes in the paper bin. Doreen Womack with Keep Midland Beautiful tells us more. #MidlandProud #MyMidland
