PGA Championship Lacks Recycling Options

Recycling bins for items like cans and bottles are nowhere to be found.

At the PGA Championship this week in Charlotte, N.C., recycling options are scarce. There are green trash bags and white waste receptacles located around the course, but recycling bins for items like cans and bottles are nowhere to be found.

The event is expected to attract more than 200,000 fans, who will likely generate a large number of empty bottles and cans that could be recycled.

The Charlotte Observer has more details:

After drinking a refreshing water, soda or beer at the PGA Championship this week, fans might be surprised to find out that there is no recycling option at Quail Hollow Club for their cans and bottles.

Green trash bags and white waste receptacles line the pathways around the course, but there aren’t any designated places for recycling.

The lack of recycling is upsetting some fans and volunteers who have been out at the course this week, said Linda Luxenberg, a Davidson resident who has been volunteering for the tournament.
