WATCH: Metro Vancouver’s garbage is taking a scenic journey down south


WATCH: Why is Metro Vancouver’s garbage on a train down south? Brian Coxford reports.

Residential and business customers are bypassing the Metro Vancouver solid waste disposal program because they think it’s too expensive. Their solution? Sending the trash on a train to Washington State. Experts say it’s costing the province over $10-million a year in lost revenue and it’s also impacting Metro’s plan to recycle more. But customers say the savings are worth it.
