Raven Recycling will re-open its drop-off service on May 19.
“We’re excited to be re-opening the public drop-off and look forward to seeing people and their recycling,” said executive director Joy Snyder in a news release.
There will be two small changes to the service, which were designed to allow the society to collect more revenue from the paper products that are recycled.
Upon the re-opening, newspaper will be recycled separately, and boxboard and brown paper bags will be mixed in with cardboard.
The drop-off bins have been shuttered since October, when the society said it could no longer afford to subsidize the recycling of unprofitable materials.
Raven made the decision to re-open last month, after both the Yukon government and the City of Whitehorse pitched in with short-term funding boosts and help getting rid of stockpiled paper and plastics.
The governments and recycling processors continue to work on a permanent solution to ensure adequate funding for recycling in the territory. Part of that plan includes curbside recycling pick up for Whitehorse homes.
The city is currently working on preparing a contract for that service, which will be put out for tender once it is ready.
