To the editor: I read with delight your article on Sunday on the efforts toward a sustainable waste system by the good folks at the Yukon River Camp. If they are willing to buy a glass crusher to use crushed glass for road maintenance, then why doesn’t the Department of Transportation in Fairbanks do the same thing?
We have lots of glass bottles and jars building up in our homes that we do not want to add to the landfill. DOT could really assist by having collection places at their Peger Road headquarters where we might take them. And it’s not like there is a lack of potholes to be filled!
