For the second time in a while, watched an older man throw away four bags of cans, in the hopper, rather than recycle them a few steps away. His reply to my question “Why?”? Don’t worry about it. I pay my taxes.” And he stomped off.
Someone had clearly separated all the cans out, and bagged them. His wife ? And he throws them away.
Is it embarrassing to recycle? Maybe he’s uncomfortable at the dump ?
Someone said maybe he is just one of those folks that never learned to read, and doesn’t realize he can recycle, or what it is.
$10 bucks worth of cash, thrown away. Strange, but it happens all too often at our Transfer Station.
Me? I’d put a camera up at the hopper, and put short video clips on the town website. Publicity sometimes works wonders.
Always looking for anyone in the Waterboro Area who hacks, especially Arduino stuff, and Atmel chips. Currently messing with MEGA2560, Uno, BMP180, RTC1307, and ESP8266. Drop me a email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I make excuses to drive to Limerick to visit this place. Often. Friendly, easy to find, and worth the trip. If you don’t like chocolate, drive someone who does ! Course, I always leave with some of the homemade Caramels. Locally made, local ingredients, and a chocolate craft shop worth the trip.

Always seems just right to visit a local craft beer, especially when it is in the neighboring town !
It’s small, friendly and a neat local place to visit. Not intimidating like many of the larger craft
micro brews might be. I was early and got to spend a few minutes talking. And I left with a growler. They had five different
brews in the making and/or on tap. They have many places in Portland that carry their beer, and I believe Woody’s in Waterboro
also does. The usual tee shirts, and glasses, should you develop a likeness for them ! I might, but looks like it will take a few moe visits
to be sure.
Link is on the Links List. Worth the visit.

Remember there are a couple of classes that get to play with, and change the site. They usually do, and try to, make things better, but are learning like all of us !
So, it was with great amusement I heard a couple of the Selectmen conversing about the lack of participation at Town Meetings, in Committees, etc. And they then downplayed it, saying people in town were happy with the way the town was being run, and didn’t need to become involved.
How times have changed !
