Take a ‘vested interest’ | Letter

The pun is intended. First of all, Joanne and I join in the continued support of our dump by voting yes on Proposition 1, the Solid Waste Levy. Next, the “vested” part is to invite you to come and put on one of those orange vests that we volunteers wear during our shifts. Volunteering is both fun and flexible. Fun. being part of a dedicated, creative, group, making a difference on our island; meeting friends, neighbors and visitors who come to see and applaud our garbage solution.

Flexible shifts are only about two hours long, with a choice of days, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. And options of shifts morning or afternoon in either recycling or “Take it or leave it”.

Next time you’re in, just tell someone with a vest on that you’d like to become part of the solution.
