    Default 10 for 1 water recycling fail

    This should count as a past experience now...the one major fail with this setup was ONE station for 10 for 1 recycling. We collected bottles and headed over multiple times on Saturday and Sunday to be hit with a 40 minute line. Not cool.

    Bad timing? I never waited more than 5-10 minutes and usually less than that. I forgot my wallet on Saturday so I was over there more than a few times.

    I tried once and there was an absurd line. The refilling stations were amazing this year however. It was a complete 180 from last year where the one refilling station always had a line and the recycling program was almost empty. Refilling station near the Gobi never had me in line for more than five minutes it was great.

    It was probably bad timing. I think my wife and I brought up about 40 bottles total, over the last two days, but never waited more than 5 minutes.

    This is why you bring money and not pick up trash during your festival experience.

    I take it you've been to no other festivals or any club, ever.

    Yeah I think it really depends. I realize $2 is inexpensive but when we had a free moment, we would pack our backpacks with bottles and head over there. Sometimes the line was 5 mins, but there was a couple instances where it was like 20. I usually gave up if it was too long and just bought some. I think they should have multiple stations.

    Recycling your garbage in your backyard even in your home is one way of protecting the environment for a greener community. However, there are recycling laws that can floods out cash in just quick time. California and Maine lost millions in recycling fraud as offenders goes green. Look no further, all of the info you'll need is at Match Financial.

    You may as well add plastic caps if your going to have this program.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
