Installing Recycling Bins at the Marina and Steps Beach in Rincon

On Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 a group of volunteers helped install the first recycling bins in Rincon at the Marina and at Steps beach.  Two bins were installed at each beach and the chapter will be working with the Municipality of Rincon to monitor the effectiveness of this beach-side recycling program.  Alex, a local high school student, cleaned, painted, and prepared the barrels that were used in this effort to fulfill his community service hours necessary to graduate this spring.  Great job Alex!  The chapter would like to thank all the volunteers that came out and helped install the recycling bins!

Steve and Jim position the Latas y Plastico (Cans and Plastic) recycling bin into place. 
These are first beachside recycling bins installed along the beach in Rincon.  One is designated for glass and the other for aluminum and plastic.  There are two more at Steps beach.
