B.C. recycling program isn’t working well

It was the Liberals’ idea to hire an out-of-province outfit to come in and make our recycling worse than it was.

To the Editor,

I applaud the resistance by Black Press and others in protesting the B.C. Liberals’ changes to what was once a good waste recycling program. Just because we are mandated a fee doesn’t make it so. It was the Liberals’ idea to hire an out-of-province outfit to come in and make our recycling worse than it was. Why should any of us pay more for that?

It’s bad enough that so much more plastic is going back into the landfills again because these out-of-towners won’t accept it at the curb, and many of us can’t get to recycle depots. I’d tell Christy Clark’s new friends to take a hike back across the country.
