Why no recycling bins at the fairgrounds?

This weekend, we went to the wonderful La Plata County Fair. We had a great time. As we walked around, I was drinking some bottled water and when I finished, I looked for the recycle can to put my bottle in. Much to my surprise, there was none.

I looked in the waste cans and they were full of cans and plastic bottles. I was shocked at the irresponsibility of a town such as Durango for not having any concern for our “Mother Earth” and treating it as trash.

I do hope that there will be more awareness of the damage we humans are doing to Earth with our plastic, aluminum cans and so many other items and that they could be recycled.
