It's summer ... please remember real live human beings, not machines, get intimate with your garbage bags and recycling. It all needs to be clean. Here's what to do:

Pack each group of these items separately:

Landfill - one or two clean, securely tied bags weighing less than 10 kg. each. If you use a can, keep it clean and dry and covered with an easily removed waterproof lid. After emptying we tip the can so we know it’s empty when we pass by it again, and to keep the water out.

Glass – we’ll take the container; include refundable glass.

MMBC - place clean, loose and mixed in a blue recycling bin or bucket that we leave behind. No soft plastics, Styrofoam, glass, tissue or refundable items please. See for a complete list of acceptable items.

Refundable Items – we’ll take the container; includes all alcohol, pop, juice and water containers but not milk cartons (MMBC).

Your collectors – Ian, Gordy, Henry, Elijah and Margaret. Questions? Call Henry 935-6940
