Saanich recycles thousands of garbage cans

Josh Rolfe, a refuse collector with Saanich, shows off some of the metal garbage cans residents turned in to be recycled at the Saanich public works yard. More than 6,000 cans – roughly two-thirds plastic, one-third metal – were dropped off as part of the two-week garbage can recycling program in early April, implemented following the roll out of Saanich’s new waste collection program. - Nate Clark/News intern
