Recycling unit undergoing repairs

The blue bag recycling separation and bailing unit at the Material Recovery Facility is non-operational while it undergoes repairs, the Ministry of Public Works announced today.

Replacement parts should arrive on the Island in two weeks and it is anticipated that repairs will take approximately one week to complete, said the ministry in a statement.

In the interim, due to space constraints at the facility, blue bags will be taken to the old recycling facility at Devon Springs where they will be stored while repairs are undertaken.

Recycling haulers have been informed of the change and the ministry says it does not anticipate any inconvenience to the public or change in recycling collection during this period.

Once the unit is operational, bags will be moved to the MRF for processing and delivery to the MRF will once again resume.

Recycling will continue to be collected per the 2015 Garbage and Recycling Schedule which is mailed out to each household annually, available on the web at or can be found in the BTC phone book blue pages.
