Waterfront Development Corporation (WDC), Nestlé Waters Canada, and RRFB Nova Scotia announced in September the Halifax waterfront public spaces recycling program — the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada. The initiative involves a usage study and incorporates new technology. Public spaces recycling captures the last mile of recyclables — items normally collected through Nova Scotia’s deposit-refund and curbside recycling programs but left by consumers in areas such as like parks, streetscapes, and other public spaces. Four-stream receptacles, manufactured by Big Belly Solar, are located along the Halifax Harbourwalk, from the ferry terminal to Tall Ships Quay. The eco-friendly receptacles feature a solar powered waste compacter that reduces collection frequency by up to 80 per cent, saving time, money and reducing pick-up emissions.
