Recycling in Gibsons, BC

Submitted by Buddy and Barb Boyd, 12 Dec 2011

 

Located on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast and accessible only by water, the people of Gibsons, BC, take recycling seriously. From the filmmaker: "As part of a dedicated group of British Colombians who know that building giant waste facilities all over British Columbia is just wrong and pretty stupid, we have created a small town alternative that can work anywhere in BC." Watch and learn, Tyee friends!
