Letter: Recycle at school sports events
When leaving a sporting event this past fall, I walked by a garbage can ﬁlled mostly with plastic pop bottles. I was really bothered by this and realized there actually were no containers available to collect the bottles even if you wanted to recycle.
Being a statistician for the BOLD wrestling program, I visited over two dozen schools and observed that other than BOLD, only one other school provided recycling.
I think most people today are interested in recycling and understand the beneﬁts of recycling. So why are containers not available at all sporting events or any event selling bottled beverages?
By recycling the bottles you save the school money in waste disposal costs, you reduce plastic from the landﬁll and you contribute to a healthier environment.
