Re: Garbage Disposal
March 24, 2004
It feels like the community is close to reaching critical mass
for a solution with the recent discussion regarding garbage dumping
along the roadsides. I'm looking forward to helping bring forward
the eventual policies that will mitigate this regrettable situation
- it can't come soon enough!
I'd like to thank Jerry Cegelske, the Society of American Foresters
and Sitnews contributors for bringing this issue to light --
and actually DOING something about it. I would also like to encourage
the community-at-large to "keep up the heat" for a
resolution to this dreadful problem.
Finally, I will add that EDUCATION is a vital component of any
effort to truly clean up this - or any - community. For example,
I remember growing up in Ketchikan fishing, cutting bait, tossing
the bait packaging overboard - seemed like everyone did it !
I am so ashamed of these actions now, but we can all use such
learning experiences to steel our resolve to forge a decent,
safe and sanitary Ketchikan.
Please call or email me if you have any thoughts or ideas. I'll
