I have read that between 50% and 80% of aluminum cans are recycled. I hope it is closer to the top number.
Of course, a few cans are recycled into Christmas tree ornaments or other ingenious uses without traveling through a recycling center.
But real recycling takes a system and commitment.
The system is a trailer where we can bring our used cans. There is a volunteer who crushes them. When the trailer is full, it is pulled to a recycling center where all proceeds are donated to our City Park.
The Park is the venue for our annual Turkey Barbecue on the third Saturday in June each year.
The Park is a cause that inspires commitment.
And the circle continues in GriggsDakota.
