Emterra Environmental will begin distributing yellow recycling bins and related recycling information material to residential properties starting Monday, July 27th in advance of the switch to the dual stream recycling program beginning on August 4th. The delivery of approximately 5,000 recycling bins will take several days to complete and we are asking for your patience during the delivery process. The distribution of bins to multi-residential properties (5 or more units) will occur at a later date as we are currently working with property owners to address their specific needs. If you are planning to be away next week, please make arrangements for your bin to be collected by a neighbour or friend.
Moving forward, residents can continue to use their existing blue bins provided the material in the bin matches the correct collection each week (paper products one week - containers the following week) as only one yellow bin will be provided to each property.
If you do not want a yellow bin delivered to your home, please contact the Public Works office (613-257-2253) to decline the yellow bin. Should you have any questions related to recycling, please contact Emterra toll free at 1-855-532-7555 or the Public Works Department at 613-257-2253.
