Time to bring longer hours back to the recycling depot

A Merry Christmas to all in Prince Rupert and sincere thanks to all of our dedicated recyclers who continue to recycle on Saturdays.

A Merry Christmas to all in Prince Rupert and sincere thanks to all of our dedicated recyclers who continue to recycle on Saturdays, despite the inconvenience and hectic situation caused by the shorter hours.

Mainland Recycling is in a very positive position due to increased volumes and better prices for material and there is no valid reason for these short hours to continue.

The short hours on Saturdays were set up on October 2, 2010, and since then I have brought up a request to return to longer hours at every meeting of the MSWAC Committee and often at the Regional District board meetings as well. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in these efforts.

Congratulations to the newly elected council, I would hope that they will press for better service to the public when it comes to

recycling.

Our City Council is quite involved in regional affairs and it is the taxpayers of Prince Rupert who fund a large portion of Regional District

operations.

Happy New Year to all!
