It’s official! I’m on the committee for the collection of organic matter. This was not my intent when I agreed to attend the first meeting of the trial program that would be implemented in our strata community. Coming in a few minutes late and sitting in the front row was not the best strategy for maintaining a low profile. And contributing enthusiastically in the discussion was another signal that I would be an excellent committee candidate. Before long, I heard myself agreeing to participate in a committee of three to launch the initiative.
I recycle, but I will be the first to admit that my knowledge of recycling is limited to reading the signage on the recycling container. My two committee buddies, however, are a wealth of information. Our first official committee meeting was held Thursday, June 29th. Once we had the details lined up, they (the experts) gave me (the novice) a guided and informative tour of the recycling area. Garbage has never been so exciting.
I am in charge of the communication. Our trial is made up of passionate recyclers who love our world and want to make a difference. As we go forward, I will be documenting our progress via this blog.
