PLEASE don’t just dump stuff in the recycling area. If you think that frying pan or those clothes are just too good to be thrown away, take them to Value Village in Runnel Drive and do some good for local charities.
THE CAMERAS WILL SOON BE TURNED ON FOR EVERYONE WITH SHAW TV TO SEE YOU! We will keep you posted about that.
NEW: Cardboard and paper can now all go into the same blue bin…that saves a bit of sorting out for everyone and will free up some space.
Please fold up or cut up your cardboard. Space is limited and it needs to be shared by everyone.
If you have a large amount, perhaps moving in, There is a recycling area very close by on Pipeline Road, just past the Inspiration Garden.
It’s always a good policy to shred your private documents and personal information. There is a free shredding service carried out by the RCMP on a regular basis. The van comes to the car park of the police station. They do appreciate a food donation for the Food Bank. Keep an eye open in the free papers.
Please rinse out any container, remove lids and screw caps, which are not recyclable.
PLASTICS AND ALUMINIUM
This is the one that some folk find confusing. We get ANYTHING that resembles plastic…the latest? A bunch of plastic sun flowers!
The rule is as follows. ONLY drinks cans and ONLY plastics with a triangle with the numbers 1, 2 , 4 and 5, usually on the bottom, e.g.:
Plastic bags and that white polystyrene which is used in packing? Neither should go in our bins. In fact, the Strata can be fined by our pick-up company. Both can be taken to the ‘Recycle’ store on Falcon Drive/Barnett Highway. Wal-Mart have handy bins for plastic store bags near each checkout area.
*** We will be issuing $100 fines for every offense and all disposal fees will be passed on to the owner ***
Thanks to everyone who helps by taking the blue bins out every Monday night too! If everyone took their turn, we would only have to do it once a year.
