LETTER: Removing recycling bins not the answer

Upon arriving for our volunteer host job at Home Basin in the White Swan provincial park, we immediately noticed a big problem. B.C. Parks had a new policy to deal with campers leaving bear attractants in their camp sites. One of the things they did was to remove the recycle bins as they were not bear proof. This turned out to be a major problem as just about everyone was tossing all their refundable bottles and cans in the garbage resulting in overflowing garbage. Daily, people were complaining to us about no recycling. We saw literally thousands of bottles tossed resulting in bags of garbage that the operators could barely lift. We even took 12 big bags of bottles home and sorted them out. We feel that half of the garbage that went right into the landfill was refundable. It could have been returned for a lot of money.
