Below is a memo with further information regarding the recycling program and a quick reference guide. Click the Document links for clearer pdf files.

Please Note: It is important to ensure your bin is fully closed to avoid rain or snow from entering the bin and contaminating the recyclables. Fold and compact cardboard boxes to keep them from allowing the cover to close completely. DO NOT use the blue bin for garbage as it is intended to be used for RECYCLING ONLY. Thank you  for your co-operation in this matter. We hope to have all the bins in place very soon and have the program running smoothly. There is a collection Calendar attached as pdf for easy reference in a link below. The events calendar on our EGFN Website will also have the Blue Bin Recycling Days indicated. They will be every second THURSDAY our usual garbage collection day. Please ensure you have your bin out early enough for collection.
