EDITOR’S NOTE: Thanks for your responses to the article, “Can DHR save the earth?”, November 1990. Letters are edited for style and length.

We recycle whatever we can. Our concession serves more than 150 clients and 30 staff. We have a large garbage can in which we place our aluminum cans. Even though our clients are mentally retarded, they are very conscientious about putting their soft drink cans in the proper place. Some even being aluminum from home.

Several staff members take newspapers and computer printouts from their office to recycling centers.

Many of the present and past workshop contracts involve salvaging materials which might otherwise go to waste. For example, a recent contract involved sorting and recycling cardboard boxes for the Frito-Lay company. We repackage a variety of materials which might othewise end up on the garbage heap or the discount bargain bin.
