During the May clean up the village reports 33.07 tons of refuse was collected over a two-week period at the Spring Street recycling center.
Using an estimated figure of 4,000 residents in Bluffton, how many pounds of crap was dumped per resident during spring clean up? First off, 33.07 tons is 72,906 pounds. The answer is 18.2 pounds.
This fact begs the question: Is every person in Bluffton – babe in arms to elder at Maple Crest – collecting 18.2 pounds of junk each year, or slightly over 1.5 pounds per month?
