The waste facility has put in strict guidelines in order to continue to handle your recycle materials.  Canada has identified waste and recycling as essential services so we are trying to do our best in order to keep these services going.

There are some changes in public access, so we ask that you please follow directions and signs as required.  Thank you, Tom
