In an effort to continue Guelph’s long history of forward thinking waste and recycling management, the city is pleased to now be offering waste bins at strategic locations throughout the city to offer a separate bin for Nickleback albums.
The neon green bins (as seen above) will be available for Nickleback drop off between April 1st and Oct 1st, 2015. Locations are City Hall on Carden St., the West End Centre & the city waste resource centre.
“This pilot project will continue to help in our diversion rate from landfill” said Mayor Guthrie. “Too often we found that there was an enormous amount of Nickleback albums being sent to landfill. Yet when we found out the that the city of Owen Sound, home of the OHL team the Attack, loves to listen to Nickleback songs every hour of everyday, we knew Guelph residents would do the right thing by recycling them to send to Owen Sound.”
Manager of Waste services hailed the pilot project as “another win for our city”. “This initiative will create efficiencies within our department. Sometimes our staff would listen to Nickleback and then start arguing amongst themselves if they were listening to the same song on repeat. One employee saying its a different song from a different album but another employee would passionately debate that the song is from a different album all together. It was getting out of control.”
It is expected with the removal of these albums it will increase productivity and bring employee wellness to new heights.
