What that means is residents will no longer be combining fibre and plastics/glass together in one bin for collection each week under the current single-stream operation; instead those materials will now have to be separated and picked up alternate weeks. The timing and routes residents currently experience will remain the same.According to environmental compliance co-ordinator Abby Armstrong, the change will save the municipality upwards of $25,000. She said switching to a dual-stream collection on alternate weeks also allows for less contaminated materials and cleaner products for the recycling facility.
