The Lunenburg Regional Community Recycling Centre will be open 8:00 am - 4:30 pm on November 12, 2018. The administrative office will be closed.
Some easy ways to reduce waste this week and every week throughout the year:
Use reusable bags when shopping and take a reusable mug to the coffee shop. Pack a "litterless lunch" in resuable containers (...and don't forget to eat your leftovers).
Share unwanted clothes with friends or donate them. Buy in bulk, when possible to avoid excess packaging.
