Solid Waste and the Business of our Stewardship of that Conundrum - February 7, 2022 | Eastern North Carolina Now

Beaufort County Commissioners Move Toward Limiting Litter and Unlawful Dumping

    One of the top issues for any board of county commissioners is the manner in which these public servants handle the policy on the disposing of the solid waste (garbage and other unwanted matter) of its citizens. With the stewardship of this planet a necessary issue, forever in perpetuity, it is incumbent upon our local society to do our part to better manage the sustainability of this wonderful place God has gifted US, we, His children. Far to often our local leaders exhibit an ambiguous desire to do their part to serve the public, at large, to do the right thing in their stewardship of our Sold Waste conundrum. What may and should transpire will giver the Beaufort County Commissioners a fine opportunity to do so.

    In the past, the Beaufort County's Commissioners have elected to favor the beginning of a Broadband Backbone to the exclusion of a simple plan to restart Recycling, when the initial incubation of how to distribute ARP funding (American Rescue Plan) would take shape. It would have required some lobbying on the part of the People's representatives, the Beaufort County Commissioners, but strong boards of county commissioners could and should do this type of thing, especially if the better angels of their constituency demand such. The majority of Beaufort County's governing board chose to take no strong position to do so.

    Now, the Beaufort County Commissioners have the opportunity to do the right thing and enact strong ordinances against unsightly, polluting litter, and unlawful dumping of all manner of solid waste. Let us hope that this time, they will do so.

The discussion on a better solid waste plan, where littering and unlawful dumpings begins here: Below.
