The Skeena — Queen Charlotte Regional District is proposing a solution to address concerns about the state of the 24/7 recycling dropoff, with bins overflowing on weekends.

The Regional Recycling Committee has recommended to the board that they consider adding an additional four hour shift at the depot on Sundays “to allow for the emptying and upkeep of the recycling transfer station”. The board supported taking it to the budget process, though no final decision has been made.
