I just found this awesome post about Waste here at Pole from a friend who wintered last year. A look at waste from a “non-wastie”: http://southpolelibrarian.com/2012/07/29/south-pole-rubbish-department I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not the easiest system – certainly not as easy as just dumping everything in one bin and forgetting about it, but it’s not too hard and after a few weeks it becomes almost second nature. I gave a briefing to everyone here at the beginning of winter and am always available to help figure out where something goes. IMG_6515

    Marie—-Your posts are so fascinating! Did I ever tell you that your Launching the Balloon shot is stunning? Or that I loved your encounter with those cute little Yukimarimoses? Or that after reading the post about the Winter Waste Guy, I am in AWE of what you do?! I think of you often. Much love and hugs, Bonnie
