Recycle, Reuse, Renew

While we are on The Ice, we recycle dozens of
different things and almost everything that
is consumed is recycled. As a result, when
we come back to civilization, we feel a little
guilty when we stay somewhere that doesn't make
a fair attempt at an ambitious recycling program.
When we moved here, we were quite happy to find
out that Grand Junction definitely has their act
together. Although it costs $1.75 per month extra
to participate, 85 percent of all 10,000 house-
holds in the city do their part. Eight different
household categories are offered, as well as
several yard and automotive categories. It
takes a little time to sort things out, but
it's worth it. will be easier to
make the transition once we're back on The Ice.
Regardless, there always seems to be too much of
it and we should try to use less and conserve
