2011

Hey everyone.

Been a little while since I’ve written. Just getting over the holidays and getting into the swing of things. We did put out a newsletter though and you can sign up on our website. www.freshstartrecycling.com There’s also a button there for twitter. Message us and we’ll message you.

Basically our newsletter was talking about our Christmas Tree pick-up/chip-up for $20, and we have a new mattress pilot project. Friday’s we’re doing mattress only collections for $60 plus $16.50/unit (mattress and box=2 units).

We’ll see how it goes. We want to keep taking these items, but Metro Vancouver has boosted the price to $20 per unit to drop off. We’re hoping to lower the price and make it affordable by doing only mattresses on 1 day a week. I’m interested to see how it goes, but if it isn’t profitable, we’ll need to tweak collection.
