Recycling in Head, Clara & Maria
Thank you for your interest in our Municipal Recycling Program. In February of 2007, our municipality contracted with a small firm to collect recyclables; in 2016 the municipality assumed responsiblity for collection contracting with Beauman to collect from bins at the municipal disposal sites. All materials should be cleaned and placed in clear (transparent) plastic bags for collection. This prevents materials from absorbing water from rain or snow and making them more difficult to collect and process.
There are a few simple rules to ensure that the materials collected end up recycled and not in our landfill. All containers and material must be clean. Containers must be rinsed so that no food particles remain in or on the container or bag. It is not necessary to remove outside paper from cans however; it is advisable to push the lids down inside the cans to prevent injuries during handling. Please separate paper products from those that have been washed to prevent damage and contamination. Unclean and damaged (wet) material will end up in our landfill. Please do your part to keep our Township green.
Cottagers - please make your best efforts to join in our program. Depending on where you live, you may be able to place your recyclables out along with full time residents at designated locations. Alternately, you may bring them to the Stonecliffe and Bissett Creek Disposal Sites. For more information call the Township Office at 613-586-2526 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local Business Operators - Bins located at both Waste Disposal Sites are available for large volumes of recyclable materials. All material must be prepared as for household collection i.e. cleaned and bagged (aside from cardboard boxes which may be tied in manageable bundles).
