Research shows that up to over fifty per cent of the material placed in the black garbage disposal bins is organic in nature.
This is particularly true in the summer months when people
are looking to dispose of grass clippings, weeds, and other garden refuse. This organic waste forms a significant portion of the cost of garbage collection and disposal.
The Town of Craik, in co-operation with Titan, is taking steps to address this issue by initiating an extra waste pick up program for the months of May to September inclusive.
Mayor David Ashdown commented “When Council can provide extra services to the citizens while saving money at the same time is definitely a win-win situation”
