|Port Edwards bins, for Port Edward's recycling!|
While Prince Rupert residents are now required to book an appointment for their recycling needs, the District of Port Edward has managed to continue on with their Recycling program in that community, though they have noticed a sudden increase in traffic and they are not very happy about it.
In a post to the District of Port Edward Facebook page, District officials note that their bins are for their residents only with a call for District residents to report anyone who isn't a resident making use of the Port Edward Bins.
As we noted earlier this week, the North Coast Regional District outlined the new measures in Prince Rupert last month, though a full information blitz to the topic doesn't seem to have been an important element of the change of direction for the facility.
So far there have been no updates as to when the Recycling Centre will return to more normal operations, or if there are plans to revisit the appointment plan and instead create controls at the Kaien Road facility to enable for social distancing and recycling opportunities.
