Mike Sale of Carrying Place is looking forward to placing his new Prince Edward County Green Bin curb side.

“We had these in Kleinburg when we lived there and got into the habit of using them. When we got to the County I felt a little guilty throwing things you can’t compost – like meat, chicken bones and skins and wet paper towells into the garbage,” he said. “We’ve put out more garbage here than there so it’s a good thing to do. Looking forward to getting into it again.”

Sale was also impressed by the design of the County Green Bins, noting they seem to be better made, larger and more durable than the ones he used years ago.

The Green Bin program is open to Prince Edward County residents with regularly scheduled curbside garbage pick-up. Participation in the program is voluntary. Learn more at a Green Bin Open House Wednesday, Aug. 14 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Wellington & District Community Centre.

Another open house is set for Tuesday, Sept. 17 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Shire Hall, Picton
