The next paper shredding event will take place in the fall. Time, date, and location will be announced closer to the date.
Residents will have the opportunity to drop-off one file-box size of paper documents. Please have bulldog clips, bindings and staples removed from paper before shredding.
Waste and Recycling Services is encouraging residents to properly recycle their household hazardous waste by hosting a waste 'round up' and BBQ.
On May 4, 2019, residents brought their paint, electronics, batteries, aerosol cans, household cleaners and more to the Recycle Depot. These items are accepted at the Depot year-round and should never be placed in residential waste or the recycling carts.
