In advance of Earth Day, we visited GFL Environmental and had a tour of the recycling facility. Hosts Denise Imbeau and Michael Baylis explained what happens to the contents of our curbside recycle tote. There are things we can do to improve our recycling and reduce contamination such as rinsing containers and removing the lids. Also glass, styrofoam, plastic bags and overwrap/film are not part of the curbside recycling program. These can be taken to the GFL facility.
