SooToday obtained the adhering to Letter to the Editor from reader Glenna Davey on the subject of recycling bins:
I want to know how prolonged have to we wait around for our recyclable garbage to be changed by the metropolis.
We’ve been waiting considering the fact that the month of July for a alternative purchase recyclable bin. We had a check out from a sanitation division employee but he has no sections, no spares, very little.
They claim due to the fact of COVID, there are no bins.
For a metropolis with insurmountable amounts of snow, and rain, and regular use, you would believe the City would have calculated the need for excess.
I would feel that numerous people today by now would demand a receptacle, since of regular use.
To worsen issues, the wheels, produced of plastic, do not stand up to our sort of climate. They crack in the cold and following a whilst, holes are bored into the plastic.
Salt would not help either.

Plastic is not a good thing for the Sault. Maybe fibreglass!
