Seeking Eco-minded Visitors to Wellfleet: Your Opinion Is Solicited

This pond is beautiful, no doubt about that. It's Long Pond, in Wellfleet, eastern end. No trash in view, thank goodness. Our town is fortunate to have a very active Recycling Committee, chaired by Lydia Vivante. Lydia has asked me to ask you a few questions today. She is holding a meeting next week to encourage seasonal renters and other assorted folks visiting Cape Cod to use the Transfer Station during their stay by recycling and composting whenever possible. How do you feel about these activities during vacation? Are you willing to make a few extra gestures on behalf of the environment? Would you like landlords and real estate agents to post friendly reminders? Have you seen any such signs? Do you bring your totes with you or use those provided at the rental? If you want your answers to be confidential, write Lydia, c/o Town Hall. Otherwise, please share ideas on how to improve recycling and composting in Wellfleet below. Thanks!
