Grand Lake once had workable solution to garbage problem

To the Editor:

Many years ago, the Town of Grand Lake had a Dumpster outside of the Chamber of Commerce on Highway 34.

Its purpose was for visitors and second home owners alike to dispose of their garbage. I don’t remember when they stopped doing that, but it was probably in the ’80s.

It worked very well and was not an eyesore. A similar thing could still be done. I was thinking that the best place to put it would be in the parking lot by the park.

Locals would know where it is and visitors if they asked somebody could find out where it is. A two-yard commercial Dumpster costs about $70 per month, which is a price that the town could easily pay. If a two-yard Dumpster is too small, larger ones can be used and they can be bear proofed.

This idea worked once very well and it could work again. It is simple, cheap and very workable.
