Friendly Reminder: Recycle Your Old Tires
Earth Day Litter Clean Up
April 21, 2021: Get together with your friends, community group or co-workers and gather litter from your road, beach or local playground.
Call the Community Recycling Centre at (902) 543-2991 to register. You’ll receive bags, gloves and a certificate of recognition.
Busy April 21st? No Problem! Groups are encouraged to participate before or after the date too. Groups must follow NS Department of Health gathering guidelines.
Paper Leaf & Yard Waste Bags Now Required
Residents are required to use paper leaf bags instead of plastic for curbside collection. The switch to paper will reduce plastic contamination in the organics stream.
Leaves may still be placed in the green cart for collection.
Paper bags are available at hardware, department and grocery stores.
Questions? Call (902) 543-2991.
