Recycling in vain?

To the Editor:

My questions are simple: What happens to Bar Harbor’s recycled garbage? What percentage is actually recycled?

As the film “Bag It” warns, “recycling” does not necessarily mean trash is actually recycled. I have asked many people. Some I thought might know; others like me are just “recyclers.”

Someone knows, but not the people I asked. Are we good citizens because we go to the trouble to recycle? I hope so, but perhaps not. Obviously the new Bar Harbor recycling center or unit is not free for taxpayers. I look forward to finding an answer to this question.
