Please note: We are making some changes at our 75 Innes Street transfer station to make it easier and safer for you to drop off your recycling. It’s going to take about two weeks, so in the meantime please drop off your recycling in the coned-off cages near the parking lot. Thanks for your understanding! In two weeks we’ll have a new concrete drop-off point ready to go!
