Increased Recycling Numbers

The Fundy Region Solid Waste Commission is reporting increased recycling this year. General Manager Mark MacLeod says they're getting 20 tonnes more of recycables each month than last year. He tells CHSJ news composting numbers are also towing the line --but--he's not sure if they'll beat last year's record.
The Solid Waste Commission will be making recycling easier by August when recyclables will only have to be divided into three groups instead of five.

Turbine Coming Home

They fell into the harbor eight and a half months ago and today....the two turbine rotors that are part of the refit project at Point Lepreau, are back in the city. Heather MacLean with NB Power tells CHSJ News, the rotors will be stored at the Saint port until the end of the fishing season but no confirmed date on when they will be transported.
They were sent to the UK to be refurbished after they were dropped into the harbor in October of last year while being loaded onto a barge for delivery to Point Lepreau.
