sland Waste Management Corporation has begun to increase its enforcement of the rules and regulations on sorting garbage across P.E.I.
Chief Executive Officer Gerry Moore says collectors are finding material in the waste carts that's not supposed to be there.
"I think the biggest thing is having recyclable material, you know, cardboard ... recyclable plastics and metals in the waste cart."
Moore says they want Island residents to take sorting more seriously.
"We have stepped up our efforts. Both our drivers and IWMC staff, because we realize that it is important you know, as I indicated, to recycle and compost all the material we possibly can, and we find our efforts work."
IWMC has rules of what can and what can't go in waste bins. If Island residents don't follow the rules they could receive a warning tag.
