Last Monday Sparwood Council approved the moving of 13 recycling bins located at one of the three recycling stations in Sparwood.

The bins are currently situated off the south side of Aspen Drive, between the Husky and Esso, and will be moved to the end of Engelmann Spruce Drive near the Animal Pound, between Public Works and Mainroad Contracting. The Public Works fence will act as a litter screen, trapping stray items that would normally blow away in the wind, and the new position of the bins will allow for simpler snow removal, making it easier for the bins to be kept clear in the winter.

The bins are being moved from their current location because that area will be used as an access to the new Best Western that is currently under construction at 101 Aspen Drive.
