So, I have been faithfully taking my glass (and tin cans and paper) to the “recycling station,” only to now learn that my glass has been going to the landfill. In other words, I have been duped by the Town of Ponoka.
In the article from a previous issue of The Ponoka News, the writer states: “One of the reasons the town has maintained the recycling depot is there is a strong desire from residents to recycle.” So would someone please explain to me why the residents who have a strong desire to recycle have been lied to? The writer further states: “He (Rod Carrick) also feels people would be upset with the change.” What change? Telling us the truth that the glass we thought we were recycling has been, in fact, going to the landfill since 2007?
Personally, I have now lost the desire to recycle anything because I now wonder what else the Town of Ponoka has not told me about our “recycling centre.” For the record, I am thoroughly disgusted with this town, for leading me on and conning me into believing that my efforts to recycle were worthwhile.
