Recycling In Province Said To Be At A Crossroads

The recycling industry in the province is calling for a public forum on what the future of the programme looks like with a warning the next few years will be challenging ones as operationalf costs increase.

Encorp Atlantic's Pierre Landry tells CHSJ News even though an estimated 2.7 billion non-alcoholic beverage containers have been kept out of the landfills around the province, there is a need for the programme to be renewed.

He would like to see other streams brought into the system such as electronic waste.

Landry says market surveys are sending the message the redemption centres themselves could be made alot more attractive and cleaner for consumers.
