Tips When Using The Depots
Material brought to the depots is the taken to the Material Recycling Facility (MRF) to be sorted and baled before being shipped to market. Non-recyclable material and garbage must be removed and taken to the Solid Waste & Recycling Facility. Help us reduce the costs of recycling! Don't put non-recyclables in the depots or in your blue bags.

  • Watch the signs at the depots
  • Take garbage away with you - only recyclables can be left at the depot
  • Don't leave behind large items
  • For information on disposing of larger items call 625-2195
