Upcoming events

Wishcycling Workshop

Feb. 27, 6 - 7 p.m.
Municipal Service Center, 7305 Oxford St.

What is wishcycling? Many of us do this when we stand over recycling bins and eventually toss something in with the hope that someone else will figure it out in the sorting process. Come and learn more about what can and can’t be recycled and pledge to stop wishcycling!

Register for the workshop by completing the online registration form.

2019 program changes

Organics collection changes and optional every-other-week garbage collection begin in 2019.
