What you bring into the park on a daily basis you must take out of the park, i.e. trash. It's really a great concept that was implemented a few years ago. It saves the park money thereby keeping things, like fees down. It's astonishing to see people looking around for a trash bin, bewildered-where did they go. When they realize the policy, that the garbage they produce, they now have to live with in there vehicles till they return home, they are dismayed.
It was new to me as well when visiting the park. It gave me a whole new perspective on how much we leave behind us when we consume. Choosing to purchase items all neatly wrapped up for us the put in a handy plastic bag will literally follow you around for the day. This is a great reminder that all the trash we create does actually follow us and those that follow us. That got a little twisted around.
