Basalt not recycle friendly

To the town of Basalt: Congratulations for shutting down the recycling program for the working people in the Basalt community. Not only does it require more driving to use the recycle center, you created hours that make it virtually impossible for those of us who do work to use the facility.

Bsalt To top that off, it’s closed on weekends! Maybe where you came from, Mr. Scanlon, you did not have recycling and don’t believe in it, but that doesn’t fly in this community.

Your pathetic excuse that the recycle center was used by some people for dumping there garbage is weak at best and as you and I know you have eliminated most of that problem by kicking out the people across the street. You owe this community an explanation!
