The City has announced the return of the annual Municipal and Hazardous Waste Day. It will take place on Saturday, May 26th from 8:00am to 2:00pm at the Archie Dillon Sportsplex and will be in conjunction with the City’s spring clean-up program. Since inception, the annual participation has been phenomenal says Luc Duval director of Public Works and Engineering. More than 900 vehicles used the service, recycling over 54,000L of hazardous waste and one tonne of waste material. Doing the job of disposal is Drain All Limited out of Napanee, Ontario. At a cost of over $86,900, the City will only need to front $20,000 as the rest gets funded by Stewardship Ontario.
The following items are listed for recycling:
▪ Oil Filters
▪ Aerosol Cans
▪ Small propane tanks
▪ Light bulbs and light tubes
