The city is partnering with Nestle Waters Canada to develop a pilot program for recycling in Steveston.

Nestle will design and place collection bins at Steveston Community Centre, Garry Point and other areas of the fishing village to collect newspapers, mixed paper and beverage containers.

The three-month project—taking place from June to August—is aimed at developing a model for recycling in public areas across the province.

Nestle would pick up the estimated $50,000 cost, while the city would service recycling containers.

The city has already tried recycling in some parks and public areas with various styles of containers, including recycling kiosks  at Canada Line stations.
