Question of the Week | Jan. 17

Are Terrace’s recycling rules actually confusing, or do residents just need to adjust?


BACKGROUND: On Jan. 7, the City of Terrace announced they will only pick-up curbside recycling if materials are kept loose inside the bins. Those who don’t kick the blue bag habit won’t have their recycling picked up, and will have to wait for their next date.

If the bin is full, additional recyclables can be placed in clear plastic bags beside the cart. Shredded paper can also be placed beside the bin in a paper bag or cardboard box.

The city says they have requested that residents place their recyclables loosely inside the bin since 2017, but only recently began enforcing it on Monday.
