Garbage and Recycling

GARBAGE AND RECYCLING

GARBAGE
Residential garbage and recylcing is collected from Tuesday to Friday.  Both recycling and garbage are picked up on the same day so please ensure you have both bins at the boulevard no later than 7:30 a.m. or your pick up might be missed.  Bins are to be set at the curb, at least 1 metre (3 feet) apart and with the wheels facing the house.  This is so the truck machinery can pick up the bins.

To find out what your regularly scheduled day is please contact the Village office.

RECYCLING
If you have more recycling than your blue bin can handle you can take it to the TNRD operated recycling bins behind the Art Holding Memorial Arena.  Items allowed to be recycled are:

  • All printed paper
  • Metel / tin containers
  • Pulp board / paper fibre products
  • Books (hard and soft)
  • Plastic bags in bundles (not loose)
  • Boxboard
  • Plastic containers (#1-7)
  • Cardboard

All other items should be directed to either landfill or a facility that can take it (i.e. electronics).  To find out where you can recycle almost anything visit the Recyclepedia site.

COMPOSTERS
Composters are available from the Village office.  They can be used to break down yard and garden waste plus household kitchen scraps including fruit / veggies, coffee / tea grounds, filters, egg shells, paper and grains.  Keep out meat, bones, dairy, greasy / oily food and pet waste.

ECO-DEPOT
For items that cannot be recycled the nearest Eco-depot is located in Pritchard at 1595 Martin Prairie Road.
