City of New Westminster goes single-stream with Urban ImpactPosted: January 16th, 2012
Urban Impact helps the City of New Westminster Go Green: article in the New Westminster News Leader
The City of New Westminster recently transitioned to single-stream recycling. The new system means residents no longer have to divide containers, newspaper and mixed paper between different recycling boxes. Instead, items like milk cartons, jars, cans, loose paper and cardboard can all be mixed together and dropped into a single cart.
The recyclables are then sent to our state-of-the-art recycling facility located in New Westminster—to be sorted and processed.
Our New Westminster Plant Manager Bing Magrata was featured in the article standing in front of bales of sorted material awaiting shipment to our plant.
