Paper and cardboard is now banned at the Terrace and Thornhill Landfills.
Solid Waste Service’s Coordinator Murray Daly says it will help improve the lifespan of their new landfill coming in November.
He says it’s a lot more environmentally friendly to reuse the cardboard.
Daly says residential residents won’t see a major difference in the ban although businesses will have to do their own part in taking care of the cardboard. You can drop off paper and cardboard at Do Your Part Recycling.
