Small Pellets A Big Idea For Mayor McRae

“Waste not, want not” could be Mayor Ken McRae’s new slogan for the city.

He’s been chasing after a way to use waste wood and industry bi-products and is hoping to bring a few new jobs into the Alberni Valley.

On a driving holiday through North Central B.C. over the summer, McRae said, he travelled through beetle-kill country, and amid the devastation he noticed wood-pellet plants springing up.
