A new intiative is coming to North Glengarry in 2019 for recycling. It’s called a dual stream system and that means residents will put fibre-related recyclables out one week (newspaper, paper, cardboard) and containers and plastics will be collected on alternate weeks.
This is being done to clean up the waste stream, according to Linda Andrushkoff, Manager of Recycling Alexandria Recyclage Équipe (RARE).
A calendar will be sent out to residents, and an education process for the public is planned, said Andrushkoff, who said the changes to recycling pick-up should happen in early 2019.
