Is it unmanly in Waterboro to recycle ?

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.

Gneiss Beer in Limerick Maine

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.
