Town of Erin and Nestlé Waters Canada launch public spaces recycling at street side park

ERIN, Ontario – The Town of Erin and Nestlé Waters Canada will officially launch public spaces recycling in the downtown street side park located at 109 Main Street on Monday September 28, 2009, at 10 a.m.

Public spaces recycling captures the  “last mile” of recyclables – items typically found in Ontario’s Blue Box curbside recycling program that are abandoned by consumers in park spaces, recreational facilities like arenas, street scapes, transit stops, bars and restaurants, elementary and secondary schools, convenience stores and gas stations.

Officials from the Town of Erin and Nestlé Waters Canada will demonstrate the proper use of the public spaces recycling infrastructure now installed at the park. It is hoped that the success of this program in Erin and elsewhere will result in its establishment across Ontario through a partnership between the beverage industry, other industry players and the Province.
