Thunder Bay behind on recycling waste
from CBC News
Thunder Bay residents need to change their recycling habits if they are to catch up with other Ontario municipalities, a recent report points out. A 2012 Ontario Municipal Benchmarking Initiative report shows the city has one of the lowest waste diversion rates among 14 communities. Small businesses in Thunder Bay are part of the problem because they are not required to recycle, said Jason Sherband, the city's Solid Waste Diversion and Recycling co-ordinator. "The bigger establishments — your educational institutions, bigger restaurants, office buildings, those type of things — they're all covered by provincial legislation that's been in place since the early 90s," he said.
