Fredericton to launch new recycling information campaign

Fredericton hopes a new information campaign to be launched this fall will help to boost recycling rates.

A recent consultants report found less than half of the recycled material that could be captured is being diverted from the landfill.

Coun. Stephen Chase tells The Daily Gleaner he thinks there's some confusion about what can and cannot be recycled.

Details of the campaign will be released next month, along with the results of a phone survey about why some city residents do not recycle.
