IS - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAtD - Friday, May 38, 1971 Drop off points set for MAYDAY Saturday is another pickup day for MAYDAY acitivities, and also marks installation of permanent receptacles at 10 drop-off points for a variety of recyclable materials. Six students forming the Environmental Crusade, under a federal government Opportunities for Youth grant will pick up all newspapers, preferably tied up; catalogues and magazines; cardboard; any glass; plastic gallon jugs and other materials. Their 10 depots will be at Winston Churchill High School, Wilson Junior High School, Westminster Elementary School, Hamilton Junior High School, Agnes Davidson, Fleet' wood - Bawden Elementary School, Lakeview Elementary School and Gilbert Paterson Tim McCoy west show here June 3 Elementary Junior High School. Depots will also be set up at Dave Elton Park and at Hen-derson Lake ball park. The students have built containers for each depot, which will be painted a bright red color. Large boxes are for paper and cardboard materials, and for the plastic jugs. Large metal barrels are for glass products, which the students prefer in unbroken condition, although broken glass will be accepted. They will also accept old books and old magazines in reasonable shape, which another group of students plans to use in setting up a summer used book shop. They ask that no letters or similar small pieces of paper, and no facial tissues be taken to the depots, as they are not equipped to bail these for shipment* to the firm which recycles their paper. The depots will be established on the school grounds and parks for the remainder of the summer, and emptied regularly. The student group says city residents are welcome to drop their recyclables off at any time at any one of the depots from now on. They have also established a warehouse in the old city electrical stores building, and will sort the paper and glass materials at the warehouse before shipment. Ico Industries in Calgary accepts the paper products for recycling into a variety of soft-board and liner manufactures; the glass is sent to Dominion Glass at Redcliff, AKa.; and the gallon plastic jugs are taken to Silver Star Industries, in Lethbridge. The students say they cannot take metal cans or other metal products, as there is no one within economical shipping range of Lethbridge who will take them for recylcing. Metal beer cans, however, can be taken to the Alberta Brewers at 135 13th St. N where a deposit is given on each can returned. Unfortunately the cans are taken from there to the dump.

On June 7 the.transit department will implement a city council - authorized cutback that will eliminate the final two hours from all bus runs. Buses on routes 2, 4 and 5 will leave the downtown area at 9:30 p.m. The No. 1 bus will start its final run at 9:20; No. 3 will leave at 9 p.m. Service on Sundays and holidays will be from 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. At present buses are available between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. The cutback will save money for the department. Oli Erdos, utilities director, said it could mean between $20,000 and ! 000 in savings over the course of a year. Approximately half that amount will be realized in the remaining seven months of 1971. Mr. Erdos. said the revised hours will not mean lay-offs in the department - all that will happen is that extra staff that would ordinarily have been hired to take care of service to the west side and other new services will not have to be taken on. Another advantage, he said, was that driver scheduling will be much simpler with the buses operating for only 16 hours a day. This fits neatly into two eight - hour shifts and eliminates an odd two - hour shift that Boles trophy won by grade six'er Dawn Davies, Grade 6 pupil | Mrs. Margaret Albitson, lang-1 principal of Fleetwood - Bawden at Westminster School, received the Edith Boles Scholarship trophy presented by the IODE in a city-wide speech contest for Grade 6 pupils.

Another delegate added this practice is carried on by every city in Canada. The convention passed a resolution that a letter of protest be sent to the workmens com* pensation board asking it to investigate management malpractice in this regard. Despite some opposition the convention also passed a resolution that would seek the appointment of a labor represe-sentative to the proposed Provincial Insurance Board. One delegate opposed the resolution stating it would give tacit approval to the private en-terpise scheme.The board is to be established by the provincial government to oversee the recently enacted compulsory no fault car insurance plan which will be run at private insurance companies. The convention also passed a resolution favoring compulsory car insurance run by the provincial government. Other resolutions approved Thursday: - call on the federal government to lift the six per cent wage guide line in regard to labor. - seek provincial legislation to force stores other than food and drug stores to close on statutory holidays. demand that all strip mining proposed for provincial recreation areas be refused. - call for repeal of sections 99 and 100 of the Alberta Labor Act.
