LETTER: Recycling needs a boost

Reader Rubenoff Johnson has a recycling suggestion for the city.

We are lucky at Granite Manor that the owners have taken a positive step and installed a second portable bin to hold recyclables. We have one garbage bin and one recycle bin and that serves the population here. Trucks arrive regularly and empty the bins. Some people are older and do not drive and having the bins is a blessing. My question to the mayor and city staff is why not coordinate with apartment and condo owners on any needed additional bin for recycle items? It keeps stuffout of the landfill and make life easier for seniors and complements recycling programs within the City of Nelson.
