Been a While!!

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I have posted. A lot has happen during that time including a trip out to Halifax for the FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) Conference. This was a great opportunity to see what happens in Halifax and area on a number of fronts. One of the most interesting to me was the way the province now handles their garbage. It is LAW in Nova Scotia to recycle. Any landlord, building owner etc, must supply the proper bins for recycling for people to use. They are gradually increasing their recycling content and if you chose not to, there is the possibility of a court case. We toured four recycling and landfill sites during the time we spent there. Definitely worth pursuing for our own province. We do not have the land issue though that Nova Scotia does, so I am sure that is one reason they handle garbage as they do. If you want more information that would be great, just comment and ask!
