Boyd Adams: Missed recycling at BBQ

Boyd Adams

The recent BBQ at the Summit was excellent except that there was NO provision made for recycling. Past BBQ events have provided for recycling. After asking at several ticket booths, I found a Rotary volunteer who said the reason for no recycling was that they would have had to pay $5,000 for recycling and since their event was a fundraiser, they could not afford that.

If the cost really was $5,000, if there were 50 vendors, a $100 extra fee each could have paid for recycling and not given the town of Dillon such a perception of not living up to the standards of conserving and protecting our environment. The Frisco Art Festival the same weekend provided recycling containers on their Main Street. The Town of Dillon should be ashamed for not adequately preparing for this event consistent with being environmentally responsible. Dillon should not allow that to happen again.
