I also love your traveling exhibits. Last night I attended your Art after Dark festivities. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to view your collections, particularly the visiting exhibit about Tom Wesselmann. I was also excited that you had such a great beer selection with excellent “black Friday happy hour” Fridays. However, I was appalled that there are ZERO recycling bins in your museum. I wanted to recycle my beer can. I couldn’t do it at your institution. Your waste bins were full of aluminum and glass. When I asked staff why you don’t have recycling bins I received two responses: 1. We should recycle, and 2. You can’t recycle glass and aluminum (!). Yes, you definitely should recycle and yes you can most certainly recycle these items. Our city makes it very easy to do so. All that is needed is dedicated bins for mixed materials (paper, plastics, bottles and cans) and the city will pick these up for your institution. It is irresponsible for you to not make the right choices in terms of waste disposal. Demonstrating to your visitors that you don’t care about recycling suggests you don’t care about our planet’s future. As an institution, you act as a role model for your visitors. By making some small adjustments to help dispose of waste properly by setting up recycling (and perhaps even green bins), you can improve your environmental footprint as well as the impression you give your visitors.
