Wood Buffalo, Suncor to launch three-year recycling campaign

FORT MCMURRAY, ALTA-The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo last week approved a partnership with Suncor Energy for a three-year recycling education and awareness campaign. The partners plan to formally launch the campaign this June during Environment Week. Suncor Energy and the Suncor Energy Foundation will provide the municipality up to $100,000 per year for the next three years to develop the public awareness and education campaign on recycling and waste management. The municipality will match this funding in order to ensure the continued enhancement of recycling in the region. The two parties will also examine the potential for joint management of wastes, including recyclables generated by both organizations. More information is available from Michel Savard, the municipality's environment division superintendent, 780/799-7494, or Brenda Erskine at Suncor Energy, 780/743-6480.
