|El Paso County Commissioners Sallie Clark, Dennis Hisey|
Amy Lathen, Peggy Littleon and Darryl Glenn recognize
the importance of Earth Month 2012 and encourage
residents to recycle through the County's facility.
Commissioner Hisey, who remembers the first Earth Day, mostly because his high school canceled a bon fire to prevent air pollution, said, conservation, is not new. “Not everybody is or has been wasteful. Previous generations were aware of their limited resources. They had less and made due with less. I think we can learn a lot by looking backwards.”
