Look for the 2017 Solid Waste Services (SWS) calendar in the November 25 issue of the Wellington Advertiser.
It explains the role each of us plays in the process to properly manage and divert or dispose of items we all have, and what happens once they leave your home.
As always, the calendar includes the key information you need to know about our services and programmes. Such as hours and locations of our waste facilities, what's accepted in our blue box programme, statutory holiday service changes, and the rural curbside collection schedule.
The theme of this year's calendar is "The Three R's and More". We are familiar with the well known Three R's, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. However, there are many more R's which help protect the environment. Each month will highlight one of the R's.
It also includes information on holiday changes, diversion programmes including blue box recycling, rural curbside collection schedules, waste facility hours and locations, and more. We hope you enjoy it.
The focus of the 2015 SWS Calendar was on our "GREEN" strategy. Each month we looked at ways the County and SWS do their best to protect and enhance the natural environment.
The theme of the 2014 SWS Calendar was "WHY". Each month focused on answering one of the many "Why's" we get from residents on our various programmes and services. The calendar includes information on our many diversion programmes including blue box recycling, household hazardous waste and electronics.
This informative calendar includes everything you need to know about garbage, recycling and composting in Wellington County.
We were pleased and honoured to be recognized by the Municipal Waste Assocation (MWA) for the SWS 2013 Calendar. Each year the MWA hosts their Promotion and Education awards for materials related to any municipal waste management or diversion programme. Winners were announced at the MWA Fall Workshop in October 2013. This calendar won silver in the calendar category for municipalities with 30,000 plus households.
Congratulations to all of the staff involved in this award-winning publication!
