It was a jovial time on Thursday as the new Sarcan Recycling Centre was officially celebrated in Wynyard.
The centre, which cost over a million dollars, is a welcome piece to the community.
“To have a facility jointly shared with Sarcan and the town of Wynyard, we’ll be able to incorporate all the recycling from Wynyard to one facility,” said Mayor Albert Boylak.
The facility itself wasn’t just impressive, it’s the location that has many, including those at Sarcan, excited about it’s potential.
“The old building was the old Co-op store on Main Street, it was alot smaller, it was two levels,” said Sarcan’s Director of Operations Kevin Atkin. “It was two steps up, front to back, which made it really hard to move containers and we were loading the truck outside in the winter time.”
“It was rough and tumble so this definitely great improvement for the Sarcan depot system.”
