Consider this an open letter of appreciation and acknowledgment to Bingo World.
Last August, in my exploration into local bingo halls, I criticized Bingo World and the Knights of Columbus bingo hall for not recycling the mass of paper and vending items (cans, plastic bottles, etc.) their businesses generate daily.
Being a greenie, I was personally upset to watch cans of recyclables headed to Dumpsters post-game in a very wasteful manner.
Donna Barney, whose husband Brad owns Bingo World, apparently took note of my poke, and emailed earlier this week to let us know that they'd just started a recycling program.
In an email, she said she expects to divert "well over half our trash" via her provider, Waste Connections — everything but food scraps and foam plates and the like.
So cheers to them, and let's hope other bingo halls in the area and all over follow suit, if they aren't already thinking green.
