* ... Why are we not seeing recycling of aluminum, plastic, steel and
paper at our events?

this isn't unique to scadian events, it's also noticable in all other
groups that i've observed (including more eco-centric groups that
should know & practice better).  makes a good case for primates being
inherent slobs by their base nature ...

probably, because while some us are blessed by a good recycling
program at our home locations, not all site locations have similar.
also, if you don't come from a location that has it, you don't think
about it - being trained to put it all in the bin for pickup.

myself, whenever i'm at a event (scadian and otherwise) ... if
practical i burn my organics and food related paper and i seperate my
metals, glass, recyclable paper & plastic ... pack them home to put
on on my weekly recycling pickup (what else if left ???), all under
the old boy scout adage "pack it in, pack it out".   you brought it
there, take it back with you.

along a related line, if you bring some camp gear that breaks - air
matress, tent, tarp, cot, table, chairs ... have some simple class
and take it home for disposal.  you packed it there and if it was
still intact you would take it home, so if it breaks why leave it for
someone else to dispose of for you????

... personally, i would love to see more marked recycling containers
next to the garbage cans ... and educating the rank-n-file in their
proper use.
