Extend Green Bin to Simcoe Businesses

An article was printed in the Midland Mirror on January 5, 2009, regarding the extension of the green-bin program to private business in the Midland area. According to Simcoe County's Environmental Services Manager, Rob McCullough, there are currently no plans to offer the green-bin program to private businesses. Part of their reasoning is that they feel it would be too difficult for businesses to get their customers to separate the waste. We feel that this mindset lacks faith in the average consumer who may want to support this program. As a Simcoe county resident, if you feel the same way and would like to see the green-bin program offered to private businesses, particularly restaurants, then please add your name to the online petition. We thank you in advance for all your support. Your Downtown Midland Merchants.
