corner brook looks at recycling more clearly, with see-through garbage bags

It is hoped that turning to clean up garbage bags will force people to recycle, especially on the list of new, longer items that residents can place on the side of the road.
For a long time, Corner Brook residents can only put paper and cardboard on the side of the road on garbage days.
Starting in July, people can now put a blue bag on the lawn with tin cans, tin paper packaging, plastic sandwich containers, milk boxes, dish fluids and shampoo bottles.
\"Clear Bag and blue bag.

\"All recyclable things are blue, white bags are non-recyclable things, your garbage and garbage.
\"Communities that use wild Bay dumps have been asked to clean garbage bags on the roadside since July 16, and other areas, such as Burgeo and Norris Point, will start later in August.
Residents can now store \"new\" recyclable items and take them out in the summer, Carey said.
