In the last three years, Tylor Redden, Sara Jurca and the entire recycling committee at Delta Middle School have worked very hard to integrate a recycling program at DMS. The program runs quite smoothly, but for a single hitch — the transportation of these goods.
We believe the solution to this problem and the problem of all Delta citizens would be to establish a recycling transfer station in Delta.
In concern for the conservation of our county's precious money, especially in these tough times, the transfer station in Delta would be the best decision. Creating this station would save us over $6,000! Many Deltans rarely visit the current station in Hotchkiss, since it is far out of the way from the majority of Delta County's usual commutes. In addition, most of Delta County passes through Delta at least twice monthly, at least to buy groceries. Therefore, having the recycling center in Delta would not waste any extra gas.
So, to provide a more cost- and energy-efficient, not to mention convenient, mode of recycling, we propose that the money-wasting Hotchkiss transfer station be closed and the better station be erected in Delta. Tylor and Sara, the leaders of this project, even have permission to use the Triantos parcel to build the station on. This would make the operation even smoother. If the county prefers not to close the Hotchkiss station, the other option would be to build the Delta transfer station in addition to the current one.
It is obviously in the best interests of all county citizens to have the Delta transfer station be erected soon. Doing so will save precious money, time, and unnecessary effort. It is clearly the most prudent plan of action.
