GFL Environmental Inc, the company responsible for Estevan's garbage and recycling pick up has announced changes to what materials can be picked up.
"Due to China’s National Sword Program, " GFL wrote in a release sent to Discover Estevan, "GFL and many other waste and recycling companies have had external factors placed upon them resulting in this change. We are no longer able to accept glass and plastic bags in our single-stream recycling process."
"GFL Environmental will continue to look for alternatives for these products and make them available when possible."
These changes will go into effect immediately.
