Glass and plastic bags can be recycled again in Estevan

Green for Life (GFL) Environmental has announced that local Estevan residents can once again place glass containers and plastic bags in single-stream recycling bins.

The company said earlier this year that it could no longer accept those materials in recycling bins due to changes in China’s National Sword Program. According to a GFL statement released at the time, other companies were affected as well.

But in a news release issued on Tuesday, GFL said it has been able to secure an alternative for those materials, allowing people to place plastic bags and glass containers in their single-stream recycling bins, effective immediately.
