  BLUE BAG PROGRAM

Since the elimination of plastic bags in the recycle program the Town has been discussing the possibility of recycle containers with our contractor Cast-A-Waste.  It does not make sense to use a plastic bag to store and set out recyclables, when the plastic bag itself is ultimately garbage.

 

Our Contractor has suggested a light weight, blue recycle container that has a secure lid and can be easily emptied into the truck.  The contents could still be visually inspected prior to emptying and if there were some items which do not belong; they could be placed back in the container for the residents to put in their garbage.  The container he feels would meet the needs, with the least cost, is a 120 litre (32 gallon) Rubbermaid recycle container with a lid that seems to fit securely.  All residents do not have to use the same container.  Cast-A-Waste can accommodate any blue recycle container up to 120 litre (32 gallon).  It must have a secure lid.

 

 

Council is enthusiastic to offer the residents of Rimbey the opportunity to utilize blue recycle containers for the residential recycle pick up program and have passed the following motion:

 Motion 268/18

Moved by Councillor Payson to approve the use of blue recycle containers with a secure fitting lid up to a maximum size of 120 litres, with the residents responsible to purchase their own containers, if they choose.
