24/7 Recycling depot transfer station put on the back burner until the Spring

As part of Monday night's City Council session, Mayor Jack Mussallem made a short commentary that the proposed 24 hour, Seven Day a week  transfer station, which was to be set up at the front of the Kaien Road Recycling Centre was going to be delayed until the first quarter of 2014.

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.
In recent years many have outlined for the City and Regional District that the current hours of operation were not compatible with their daily schedules.

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.
