A quick post as I get ready to leap back into work mode. I was walking by a construction site garbage bin at the Kealia Ponds National Wildlife Refuge on Maui. They are getting ready to replace a bunch of the board walk (I was there for the birds, not to look at their work site!). After getting great looks at 'Auku'u (Black-crowned Night Heron), Koloa (Hawaiian Mallard), 'Alae Ke'oke'o (Hawaiian Coot) and Ae'o (Black-necked Stilt), I had another look at the bin and found the sign above. It's an ongoing problem at a work site to manage bins. I try and divert as much as possible through up-cycling first, then recycling. That can mean hanging on a bit too long to some materials, just in case you can reuse them. I am working on that - the kiss of death is to move it twice. An open bin is an invitation to some to dump everything from used oil to, yes, full diapers. If you are going to drop off your old Christmas tree or mattress, at least look to see if the bin is for drywall only. That kills me. I already dumpster dive for art materials. I don't need to do it on a daily basis to keep the drywall bin 'clean'. I am not going to ask Madame Pele to intervene as I think she has her plate full with Volcanoes. That said, I may think about her the next time I find a full diaper in the drywall.
