Recycling Programs on Race Days


At the GW Classic on Apri 13, 2014, plastic bottles and thermal heat blankets along with cardboard food boxes were all tossed in the trash. These can be reycled AND earn money for the city's reclycling program!  We just need coordination! Recycling bins at prominent locations at the end of the race as well as signage advertising that Alexandria recycles on race days are needed. I have reached out to the city to discuss coordinating pick up to ensure these plastic bottles and food boxes are recycled and Alexandria earns money on these products! I'd like to work on a green initiative with the CIty, Pacers and other sponsors so that future race days in Alexandria GO GREEN!!  


Race organizers should have to be responsible

Why should alexandria funds be used for these essentially private events
