Town tries out street-side recycling.
In March, Niagara-on-the-Lake began offering pedestrians the opportunity to recycle glass, aluminum and plastic containers, locating 25 permanent recycling containers along historic Queen Street in the Old Town.
Introduced as a pilot project in the fall of 2003, the street-side recycling program was created to address the need to manage recyclables generated from the town's successful tourism sector.
Janice Thomson, executive director of Niagara-on-the-Lake Chamber of Commerce, says, "Working with the town and a regional partner like Chew Lane Fabrications, we were able to develop a progressive solution to a growing problem. The custom-made recycling containers are a perfect fit both aesthetically and economically."
Donna Chamberlain, president of Chew Lane Fabrications, says her company's role grew beyond that of manufacturer.
"Working in tandem with the Chamber of Commerce and the town's Parks and Recreation Department, we were able to develop several varied solutions to help ensure that the final product design and recycling program met the budgetary, aesthetic and operational requirements of the town's existing collection operation," she says.
