Recycling market crash puts crunch on local depots

On  Aug. 21, Brent Kenney, owner of Pass Beverages recycling depot, alerted the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass that, due to poor market conditions and dwindling space, the depot will no longer accept cardboard, paper, tin or glass recyclables, starting Oct. 6.

In Pincher Creek, Wes Whitfield, owner of K.J. Cameron Service Industries, has asked the Town and MD of Pincher Creek for help to move a growing backlog of material, and may also need to suspend or alter its recycling service if aid is not received soon.
