Just recycle!

Dear Editor:I think the town of Aspen has a recycling problem. Some people are not recycling. If we don’t start recycling, reducing or reusing our trash, the landfill will fill up, and it may have to be your backyard. That won’t be fun, will it?I think more people in Aspen should reuse. If they don’t soon, there goes your backyard. One way to reduce trash is stop buying those small boxes of juice, just buy those big containers of juice. Just recycle! I know it costs a little bit of money each month. By the way here are some tips: 1) Don’t buy those boxes of drinks, just buy jugs of juice. 2) Don’t throw away glass, plastic, bottles in trash! Throw them in recycle bins! 3) If you don’t empty liquids from bottles, the liquid will leak in our groundwater, and that won’t be good.If you don’t recycle you are just destroying our world.
