A Better Bele Chere

From Robin Cape in an enewsletter:

"The City of Asheville today announced the results of increased efforts to encourage recycling during Bele Chere. This year 41.4 percent of the waste collected was recycled, compared to only 8 percent recycled in 2006. This dramatic increase is attributed to several new initiatives, including: a recycling ad in the 2007 Bele Chere guide, new labels and strategic placement for recycling containers, and the presence of a city recycling coordinator who met with vendors regarding waste and recycling each day of the festival."
