The signature line of Small Hope Bay Lodge is “Rest, Relax and Rediscover.” Maybe we should add an additional “R” for “Recycle,” since recycling many products has become a small industry here at
The Small Hope Bay Lodge recycling program has its genesis in Dick Birch’s original philosophy of operating the resort with minimum ecological impact.
Systematic recycling of steel and aluminum cans and beer bottles only became possible several years ago when Commonweath Bottling began a beer bottle return program. Recent metal recycling programs such as “Cans for Kids” and Caribbean Recycling finally made it possible
to recycle beverage and food cans rather than dumping them in a landfill. With those programs in place, Small Hope Bay Lodge was able to develop a system of daily waste management geared toward recycling and reuse rather than dumping. Creating drinking glasses from wine bottles was a local brainstorm, since there are no local programs to recycle bottles other than Kalik beer bottles.
