Letter: New facility makes it harder to recycle

New facility makes it harder to recycle

I work in Aspen but have lived in Basalt for the last 30 years. The recycling center, which I use, has now moved from downtown Basalt to the Basalt Trade Center (on the edge of Willits).

It took me two trips to finally find the place as there were no signs and when I did, on Sunday, with a half-carload of recyclables, the gated area was closed with signs stating that there were no weekend hours and weekdays were 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Are you kidding me?! I just sent all my stuff to the landfill. I work Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is going to work for so many fewer and we have been working hard on it.
