On-Street Recycling

The City has launched an on-street recycling program. Fifteen new recycling containers have been installed in prominent locations throughout the community. These containers provide the public with the opportunity to deposit recyclable materials into the street bins. This program is the result of a recent City waste audit that found a significant volume of recyclable materials being placed in on-street garbage containers.

The City's new recycling units have three brightly labelled separate openings for newspaper/mixed paper, beverage containers and garbage, and will eventually replace many pole mounted containers and free-standing, single stream trash receptacles.

The City hopes the convenience of these bins will promote increased recycling in our community, and help reduce the amount of waste being sent to the landfill.
