As I write this message in early May for the June edition of The Beacon, there are several important issues that have come to the attention of our community association’s board. These issues have long lasting implications and should serve to make us all think about what it is to be a community within the City of Calgary, and the importance of working together to control what our future here will look like. Unfortunately, my crystal ball is on the fritz today so I have no idea what may have transpired by the time you read this.
Blue Cart recycling tip of the Month
Recycle your old gadgets and electronics the right way!
Electronics recycling depots are available around the city to help Calgarians properly dispose of their old and broken televisions, printers and computers.
Never put electronics into your blue cart – they will damage the sorting equipment at the recycling facility and can harm the workers.
