2017 Solid Waste Services CalendarThis year, the Calendar theme examines what happens to waste materials managed by SWS. Each month focuses on a different item that SWS handles in the waste stream.

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.
