You might never give a second thought to trash collection services other than to place your trash on the end of your driveway on the appropriate day. My name is Lisa, and I want to tell you why you should think about your local sanitation and what happens to your trash after the garbage workers have taken it away. Did you know that trash that is not appropriately collected can cause health problems in your community? It can also damage the environment and the quality of your water and air. Educate yourself about what happens to the trash in your community so you can effectively fight for the health of your family and your planet.
Are you the designated person who is supposed to be in charge of the campground cleanup at your next family reunion? That might not be as much fun as being the person in charge of planning fun games or interesting crafts. However, if you do things right, this job could turn out to be a relatively easy one. From making rules to renting portable dumpsters, here are some ideas that might help you to maintain the campgrounds at your family reunion.
Start With Renting Portable Dumpsters - Of course, if you are staying at a place like a state park, there will more than likely already be established dumpsters at the location. However, if you are setting up camp somewhere else, you'll need to take care of renting dumpsters yourself.
Making The Clean Up Fun - Start your reunion with a short meeting where you will establish some easy-to-follow rules.
Whether you are at a campsite that has established dumpsters or whether you rent them for the duration of your family reunion, remind your family campers that there may be wild animals in the area. If you are camping in tents, tell everybody that food inside the tent is a very bad idea. Those wild critters just might be very tempted to help themselves to food right inside the tents.
