Recycle Shop - Hamilton Tip

Shemie from Nawton

I for one will miss the Recycle Shop at the Hamilton Tip.
HCC in its "wisdom" has forced the closure by selling the contract. All recyclables will now be thrown/bulldozed into the refuse. (I was told).
What the hell are they thinking?
No longer will this facility be a place to find those bits and pieces for our craft projects, at decent prices.
Admittedly, I have been away from Hamilton so only found out yesterday. I have no idea if there was any consultation or what thought put into this closure.
The business that recycled these re-usable products was not running at a loss (I've been told), very fair pricing, great finds and friendly/helpful staff.
People losing their jobs?
I've also been told Habitat for Humanity will take over the site in the next few months.
I'm all for recycling of anything useful but doubt I'll frequent their store.
Their prices are ridiculous, as are the prices for the junk sold by the Sallies.
Neither stores are on my list to visit any longer.
