Rothesay May Lead In Recycling

Recycling in Rothesay may soon be as easy as walking to the end of your driveway.

Mayor Bill Bishop says they've been looking at curbside recycling for a while, and now they've had a response from the Fundy Region Solid Waste Commission recommending a 6 month trial period.

Bishop says the tricky part will be finding a contractor that will bid for only six months. He says they may have to ask the Waste Commission for a 12 month deal instead.

If the project goes through Rothesay will be the first town in Southern New Brunswick to adopt curbside recycling.
