Information on the procedure for recycling and waste management. There are specific items that go into specific recycling containers. In order to keep condo fees at a minimum, each week a volunteer owner needs to move the recycling bins to the parkade ramp and bring them back the next day.

Learn more about being a volunteer here.

Garbage: Please ensure to only throw out bagged household garbage in the building garbage bins (no furniture items or electronics please). If necessary, please double bag your garbage.

Please do not dump your garbage or recyclables in the recycling area if they do not fall into the categories that are provided for our bins. For other items such as furniture, fixtures, electronics and more, please recycle them at a proper recycling depot.

Recycling Guidelines

CARDBOARD

Please fold up or cut up your cardboard. Space is limited and it needs to be shared by everyone.

PAPER

It’s always a good policy to shred your private documents and persona; information. There is a free shredding service carried out by the RCMP on a regular basis.

GLASS

PLASTICS AND ALUMINIUM

The rule is as follows. ONLY plastics with a triangle with the numbers 1, 2 , 4 and 5, usually on the bottom.

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 or at Wal-Mart, as there’s a handy bin near each checkout area.
