Residents get more time before garbage fines

Salmon Arm residents now have to the end of the year to get sorted on the city’s garbage and recycling bylaw.

Salmon Arm residents now have to the end of the year to get sorted on the city’s garbage and recycling bylaw.

At Monday’s meeting, council gave third reading to a bylaw that extends the date for fine collection related to garbage and recycling.Fines will come into effect in Jaunary 2012. Council was favourable to the extension, and suggested additional public education is needed.

“Going into the future, I think we may have to look at planning some more budget for proactive education around recycling… based around what should be in the bag, what shouldn’t be in the bag,” said Coun. Ivan Idzan.

 

Coun. Chad Eliason called the extension fair, but said it shouldn’t be extended any further. He then asked city staff about expanding the program to include  monthly glass pickup. City engineer Rob Niewenhuizen said there’s only about five months of data to go from and more is needed. He expected to have something put together by September.
