Re: Shrink-wrap Re-cycling
 
This note is to alert you to RHYC shrink-wrap re-cycling guidelines for this spring. This change brings our club into alignment with Boating Ontario – Clean Marine best practices, and has been arranged by our Environment Committee working with RHYC operations staff to put in place policies that are already followed by most of the other yacht clubs in the province.
A bin will be delivered to the parking lot storage area on Friday April 1, and is intended to be used only for shrink-wrap disposal. If you have no re-use plans for your cover, please schedule its removal and disposal in the bin during the 2-week interval that follows.
To make this process work, we’re asked to separate all ropes, vents, vent wires and other foreign objects from the shrink-wrap. Those items should be placed in the club garbage receptacles. The shrink-wrap can then be bundled and placed in the designated bin. No other items should be disposed of in this bin.
 
If you have any questions, please check with Pascal.
