NEWS IN VANCOUVER

 

Recycling Program Changes in the city

As of October 3, 2016 the City of Vancouver will no longer be picking up recycling from its residents and businesses. The city will pass the reigns to Multi Material BC, a company that already collects household garbage from areas around the province. Ultimately, the city wants to focus on cleaning up the curbside appeal of its streets and take care of the excess garbage and junk that needs to be removed from its alleys, curbs and parkways. The MMBC is a non profit association that with any luck can do the service cheaper and more effectively then the city workers. The recycling program has been hit with cost overruns and other inefficiencies and an abundance of abandoned junk materials left in the streets. The labor that was previously used to collect recycling materials will now be spread out among other departments. If you are a home owner, you might see your utility fees decrease because the roughly $15 levy is not going to be charged anymore.
