Cardboard ban going well: Kupiak

The Alberni Valley’s ban on cardboard at the landfill is going well, said Sun Coast Waste owner Jerry Kupiak.

The Alberni Valley’s ban on cardboard at the landfill is going well, said Sun Coast Waste owner Jerry Kupiak.

“We’re seeing more cardboard on the (commercial) routes and less cardboard at the depot,” said Kupiak.

“I think with the city getting out of commercial collection, people took the opportunity to switch to a new garbage collector and also add recycling.”

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District implemented a cardboard ban in July and the city council voted to cancel commercial collection in the spring.

The city stopped commercial garbage pickup at the end of September.
