Many of you that read our blog, know that Dairy Creek is currently working towards Zero Waste status and things are going well and systems are working. All that is left is the fine tuning. Golfers are doing their part by separating their waste and through our tours and presentations about Zero Waste we are getting the message out to the public about how they can perform these simple tasks or create these systems at home. Collectively together we can all make a difference. And imagine a wasteful golf course professing and following such a clean initiative!
Our newest accomplishment, I say ours, but really it is the accomplishment of our local Integrated Waste Management Authority (www.iwma.com) has received a $100,000 grant to provide all of the golf courses in our County with waste receptacles to help make recycling and sorting easier. I cannot confirm that the implementation of our Zero Waste Park at Dairy Creek helped spur this idea or proof that such a grant had merit, but I like to think in some small way we are making a difference.
