The Clairmont Centre for Recycling and Waste Management Access Program and Waste Cards begins for County residents today.
Under the new program, each household in the County can dispose of their waste at the facility for free, up to 1,000 kilograms in a calendar year.
Households that bring in waste above the annual amount will be subject to standard tipping fees. There is no limit to recycling.
1,000 kilograms is the equivalent of approximately 2,200 pounds, 156 large garbage bags or 52 full curbside waste carts.
“Bringing in this standard level of access for all County households will modernize our operations here at the Clairmont Centre for Recycling and Waste Management and encourage families and households to be mindful of their waste,” says Jennifer Besinger, Technical Services Manager.
