The mess in the photos attached was created by locals. I have proof but Tideline won't let me name them here so I put it on facebook, "Cortes Island Recycling Centre and Free Store"
. This is totally unacceptable. What is wrong with people who think (or rather don’t think) it’s ok to make a mess like this. Shame on you all. Bagged trash or recycling inside the freezers works as intended but dumping loose trash or recycling in there is not ok with anyone who works here. The freezers have been removed because of these few careless unthinking idiots everyone pays. Shame on you from everyone who used this option properly. Please note before you choose to leave anything at the gate in future, the sign says $2000 fine for littering and will be enforced. Your disgruntled Midden Keepers. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cortes-Island-Recycling-Centre-and-Free-Store/198242703522648
