Glass Bottle Recycle at Cathedral Lookout?
« on: June 29, 2016, 12:06:57 AM »
I was thinking that perhaps if there were a glass recycle container up on the lookout "maybe" folks might use it instead of trying to recycle it themselves my throwing the bottles off the top and hoping the fall smashes them into dust... It's getting pretty nasty along the base. We pick up a lot but a lot still remains and it seems to thwart eradication with continued "growth"...

People who throw bottles off the top of cliffs are not people who are interested in recycling.  They are teenagers and the frontal lobe is not yet fully working.

Agreed. The only thing that I think will cut back the nighttime glass toss would be closing the road around 8pm like they used to.

I witnessed one fine day a yahoo that emptied his hibachi over the top of Recompense. Yhep, all the briquettes were still burning. There was a party on the last pitch at the time.

That's  good training for storming medieval castles.

I had heard about that one but never found a witness.  Fabulous......

If they won't close the road at night,  a chain saw could do it with one tree.
