Recycling a concern for this Prince Rupert voter

The ad in The Northern View of October 12th, 2011 regarding Mayor Mussalem’s record caught my attention.

Two points – the past year I have attended almost every meeting of the SQRD Board open to the public, and have noted on each occasion, at least 80 per cent of the Agenda has dealt with matters on Haida Gwaii and have seldom heard our present Mayor as Vice Chair of the Board, express an opinion on either Haida Gwaii or the Mainland operation.

The financial picture at Regional Recycling is improving due to increased volume of material from Terrace, better product prices in the latter part of 2010 and this year, and the continued support from local recyclers despite the inconvenience of the reduced Saturday hours.

After one year, our dedicated recyclers have still not received the much requested return of reasonable hours on Saturday – working families day to recycle.  The cost would be very minimal, less than 1 per cent of the total 2010 budget and would really benefit our local recycling families who are the tax payers and voters of Prince

Rupert.
