Recycling Collection Issues
October 2, 2017
Public Works has completed recycling pickup across the Town, we apologize for the delay in collection.
The Town of Peace River understands that residents have not received the service they expect or pay for. In response to these concerns, Town Staff met with the waste and recycling contractor Green for Life Environmental (GFL) to discuss the recent breakdowns and personnel issues that have led to recent service disruptions.
“We profusely apologize, we understand service has not been adequate and are appalled,” said GFL Site Manager Kevin Marthaller. “We’re working closely with the Town of Peace River staff to rectify the issues and provide better service moving forward.”
In order to prevent disruptions due to mechanical breakdown, GFL will be providing three trucks to service the Peace River area. Regarding personnel issues, sick days etc. GFL will ensure there are at minimum two drivers available for collection in the Peace River area.
There will still be collection taking place this Thursday.
