Story raises questions

The Union had a nice article about Nevada Union students starting a recycling program at their school earlier this year. While this was certainly a laudable effort, it brings up several questions.

Where were all the administrative people all this time? This idea wasn’t exactly rocket science. Many Nevada County residents have been voluntarily recycling for a decade or so. Is recycling going to be implemented at other schools or is it up to the students there to start it? Doesn’t Nevada County have a recycling coordinator on the payroll?

If we are going to meet the state’s recycling mandate, there’s going to have to be a lot more effort from the county and its citizens in publicizing the problem and coming up with solutions.
