Recycling stations have been placed at Berksdale’s halfway house and #8 Tee Box. These were built with re-purposed pallets and accumulated scrap lumber. Casual observation has indicated 90% of waste collected on the course are aluminum cans and plastic drink bottles. We successfully began collecting cans a few years ago, using a large blue receptacle at the halfway house. We also began recycling cardboard at the maintenance shop in cooperation with the Bella Vista Recycling Center last year. Our hope is that these stations will help further reduce our waste stream and support Berksdale’s mission of environmental responsibility.
