As Monctonians, we are proud of our efforts in providing solutions to care for the environment. The environment plays a huge role in our lives and we work hard to create as little impact on it as possible.
On October 1, 2006, the City of Moncton’s launched the Wet/Dry Waste Separation program, which makes separating waste into blue or green transparent plastic bags mandatory for all city residents. The program boasts a 99.9 per cent participation rate.
The benefits of this program are numerous. Our community’s participation in the Wet/Dry Program is extending the life of the Westmorland-Albert landfill and dramatically increasing the amount of material being reused and recycled. This not only reduces our community’s carbon footprint, but also reduces the overall cost of providing waste collection services. Presently, more than 51 per cent of residential waste collected is recycled or composted.
In fact, in 2007, the Westmorland-Albert Solid Waste Corporation recycled more than 11,000 metric tons of materials thanks to the city’s Wet/Dry Waste Separation program.
