Three Different Options For The Future Of Recycling In SJ

Saint Johners have three options for the future of recycling in the city: maintain the status quo, eliminate the compost program--which is cheapest-- or do away with recycling depots and have both curbside recycling and composting...which is most expensive at $2.5 million.

Brenda MacCallum of Fundy Region Solid Waste tells CHSJ News we're not currently doing too badly with a 38% waste diversion rate.

Public consultations are being held throughout the city to get feedback, then the solid waste commission will make a decision this summer based on the information collected.
