Trash Talkin'
« on: August 06, 2012, 09:17:39 PM »
Water Works trash duty has been taken care of tonight with the help of Peter Bures and some Boulevard Tank 7. Not sure who is keeping track of it, but it was pretty bad. Let me know if you guys want to get another work day going out there for this fall. I'll bring the beer!

I was thinking about making a craiglist add for can collectors in town, to come out to our courses and collect all the cans they want. Might alleviate alot of trash and can collectors would make some good dough off disc golf courses!!! A bit scared they will leave all the other trash on the ground, so a little gun shy on this...

 Whats everyone think?

Tank, I had almost the same thoughts.  Would like to see that stuff get recycled, but still afraid of the trash being left out.  Maybe recycling only containers, but most of the time people put trash in those as well.

We honestly didn't find too many cans last night. It's about 75% plastic bottles and the rest is glass bottles, cans and trash. I would say a recycling bin or two would be a bigger help.

honestly, i've seen courses go to hell cuz of litter, and most of them have garbage cans. i think the garbage cans encourage people to dump their trash whether it's full or empty. i suggest keeping any garbage cans nearer the road or removing them completely. sternly worded signage for park users to remove their own garbage would certainly be worth a try, but does any course really need a can on every other hole? sure you may say they are convenient, but i believe they are unnecessary, and are inanimate enablers for the environmentally bovine.

That was Jose who sent you that picture. It was during league. We had to keep moving. Don't blame other people. That is more awesome.

Ian & Peter,

Thank you so much for helping on short notice.  Theiss brought up an idea recently.  How would people feel about getting sent out on their league card with a new trash liner and if on the last hole the trash is full you bring it in.  Thoughts?

I know we expect altruism, but what is the incentive?  Could we do a discount for next league?  Just a thought....

No incentive. Our club sponsors the course so we should help take care of everything P&R doesn't do.
