Welcome everybody to our new website design! Kudos to Gary Fleming and the IT department at Business Information Group for developing the new look and functionality of our new site.
The main differences you’ll notice are:
— The navigation buttons for different areas of our site are a simple horizontal row across the top of the page, without the redundant vertical ones that used to be on the left side of the home page.
— In addition to our Headline News in the middle of the home page, there’s now a space on the left side of the home page for one or more Feature Articles, that also allows for a robust use of color photos. Watch for more special news coverage, more “people in the news” and industry events, and highlighted useful products and equipment here.
— Overall, a less cluttered, user-friendly website with video and other multi-media programming.
Finally, the changes are more than cosmetic. The new design is also part of a shift to a totally new online publishing platform that will enable us to seemlessly offer visitors more information products and services. So, visit us regularly. We’re determined that our website be the destination of choice for professionals in the solid waste and recycling industry in Canada. — ed.
