We need recycling here

Dear Sir:

I am writing to you because I am concerned about Terrace’s recycling program. I am 10 years old and was born and raised in Terrace.

I think the city of Terrace needs to think of a recycling solution and fast. If we don’t  have a recycling program, the Terrace landfill will fin up quickly.

I don’t  understand why other B.C. communities have free recycling and pay for landfill use and in Terrace it is the opposite, you pay to recycle but it is free to use the landfill.

Hopefully in the near future Terrace will have a recycling program for our community.

When I’m grown up and have a family of my own I want to live in a safe and healthy environment.

Cedar Butler,

Terrace, B.C.
