Recycling is not about making a profit

By finding ways to lower this number we can reduce our environmental impact

I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Bradley, I could not believe it when I heard he was told we can’t profit from recycling the glass.

I thought the point of recycling was to make a difference to the planet not to make money!

I know we can’t just keep paying out the taxpayers money but we do already pay for recycling right?

The average household in Campbell River produces 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of garbage each month.

By finding ways to lower this number we can reduce our environmental impact and stretch the life of our over-burdened landfill.

There was also a comment in the media,that there is too many articles like bottle caps, etc., in the bins, I believe that would be an education issue.

If we don’t recycle, the next park you want to spend millions on will be a converted landfill.

Please reconsider this idea.
