Why can’t clamshell containers be recycled?

Recently, there have been many changes to what can and cannot be recycled in our city. I have read the articles that explain why these changes were necessary and, for the most part, I understand.

Clearing the air on recycling

Sometimes I get a bit frustrated with the press. Reading Saturday’s editorial ( St. Albert Gazette , Jan. 19) is an example. Although not overly negative or incorrect, the message is aimed in the wrong direction.

My first letter to the editor in 34 years of living in St. Albert because I’m getting tired and not a little bit exasperated at the complaints from people decrying council’s decision to fund a storefront library.

Thank you to all who contributed

My smart water meter failed me

I received a call from the City of St. Albert’s Utilities and Environment Department notifying me our water usage overnight was continuous at 170 litres per hour.

Smoke and mirrors

Reading through city council’s reflections from 2018 in the Gazette , I am amazed at some of the creative messaging techniques used by councillors to spin issues.
