In an effort to restore Renfrew curbside recycling collection, Public Works Crews will be out next week (July 9 - 11) collecting curbside material. We kindly ask all residents to place their blue boxes curbside PRIOR to 7am on their regular designated day, as pickup times may be different than usual. All material is to be sorted between Fibre and Comingled, and we ask that it be contamination free. For more information regarding acceptable recycle material, please visit our website at http://www.renfrew.ca/garbage-recycling.cfm.
Keeping recyclable material out of the landfill has been a high priority for the Town, and we are grateful to all residents for their patience, understanding and commitment to the recycling program. A special Council meeting has been called for Tuesday July 9th to award an interim solution that will restore service to the Town until a longer term solution can be found.
The Waste Management Committee, and the Development and Works Team
On Tuesday June 25th, the Waste Management Committee held an emergency meeting to discuss the implications that the Recycling Contractor’s disruption in collection services has caused in the Town of Renfrew.
We ask all residents to not put out recycling materials at this time. The Committee acknowledges the inconvenience and wishes to advise all residents that they are actively reviewing alternative options in order to find a suitable solution while respecting contractual obligations.
More information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
If you have any specific concerns, please contact the Development and Works office at 613-432-8166.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
