24/7 Recycling depot transfer station put on the back burner until the Spring
The plan to provide Prince Rupert and area residents with recycling options on a 24 hour a day, 7 day week basis, has been something the community has been seeking for a number of years now.
The project was given a boost back in August, when the Prince Rupert Port Authority provided an 18,000 dollar contribution towards it, through the Port's Community Fund.
For now at least, they'll have to make do with the current status of the recycling centre and its hours of operation.
The Mayor offered didn't offer up much more than a short comment that it was some kind of personnel issue that led to the delay, though it's anticipated that the project should be in place by March of 2014
You can review his announcement from the City Council Video Archive, the recycling issue comes up at the 43 minute mark.
