Trash Trip

Exploring waste, from coast to coast.

Make My Brown Bin Blue

Brown Bin Meets Blue Bin

A short but busy day in the Ashland-Central Point areas of Jackson County. During my trip here, I now know that Jackson County is an active county – when it comes to many things! From Shakespeare to Recyclables – there is a lot of active participation, and it shows!

I did one interview today, with Rhianna Simes of the Oregon State University Extension, and coordinator of the Master Recyclers Program in Jackson County. If only more counties would take a similar approach to facing the long-term problem of waste – the hidden mountain which are effectively placed out of sight. Out of sight, out of mind.

But, the color blue stands out nicely – everywhere you put it! A nice and cheery color, if you ask me 🙂 International Distress Orange could’ve been a close second, or perhaps “Shocking Pink” and “Alien-Puke Green.” Of all the choices, blue worked out well.

Now, the next question that begs to be asked – what color are my eyes?
