Ever Green Recycling plans to introduce a new high-tech, solar-powered recycling container to make the service more convenient for users.
The container, which will be installed at the depot on Blackmarsh Road in St. John's, will be the first of its kind in the province.
"It allows a 24/7 experience for customers," said Mike Wadden, president of Ever Green Recycling. "It extends the express system that's already available in the depots."
Wadden said it will be similar to the existing automated express kiosk used by account holders. The difference is that customers will have the option to drop off recyclables any time, day or night.
