Strong Crowd For First Curbside Collection Info Session

The first info session on Salmon Arm's new curbside collection program was Thursday.

Bi-weekly garbage collection, weekly food waste pick-up, and recycling bins are on the way as of July 1st.

Mayor Alan Harrison says that City Hall saw a good turn-out "The attendance was great, we had lots of people drop in. Lots of people who were in to pay their taxes also went in to learn more about the recycling and curbside organic pickup. So, very well attended - lots of good questions and lots of good information shared."

He says that most people have been quite supportive of the plan "It's a really good thing that's happening - I think it's the right thing, but like anything.. when you implement anything new there's hiccups, and we're trying to catch those before implementation."

The next info session is set for June 20th.
