Rethink the recycling center

Dear Editor:I think recycling is most important to our environment, but the COWOP has plans to change the recycle center into a state-of-the-art wonder that cannot fit realistically onto the present site. The best location for the new recycle drop-off center should be across the street where it was operating this past winter during temporary construction. There seemed to be no complaints with the change.The present site is a rare piece of land situated on the river which overlooks John Denver Sanctuary and has majestic views of Independence Pass and Aspen Mountain. It should be a continuation of the Rio Grand Park, where the community could enjoy relaxing in a peaceful atmosphere!Diana Van DeusenAspen
