Gibsons Recycling Depot & Resource Recovery Centre has added a new piece of equipment. As of December 21, 2014, they are now accepting clean (no plastic or any non organic material) food scraps at the facility. Drop off a 5 gallon pail of food scraps for $1. For their curbside customers, there is no additional charge to accept food scraps when they pick up your recycling.
Barb and Buddy, the owners of the depot, have been testing the new Green Mountain Earth Flow composter over the last five months. They purchased the used compost equipment 11 months ago and and have reconditioned it.
As a special Christmas gift to the community, customers can bring in all their clean turkey bones and food scraps free of charge until January 1st.
