RECYCLING INFO

In partnership with the Township of Terrace Bay, a free recycling depot has been established at the Terrace Bay landfill.  The depot is open to all residents and businesses of Schreiber during normal landfill operating hours within the rules of the program.
 
Residents and businesses are asked to bring materials following the rules of the system:
  • Materials must be sorted, clean, dry and flattened as per program rules
  • Materials must be in clear transparent bags or bundled/flattened (cardboard) 
  • Visitors will show the materials to the attendant to inspect for compliance with program rules
  • If the materials are within the program guidelines, they will pack inside the 53 foot trailers.

WHY CAN WE NOT RECYCLE THESE?  The recycling depot has to follow the rules of the receiving facility (Recool Canada Inc.) and they only accept certain materials.  Some recyclables like the ones outlined above that are not accepted may be too high a cost to recycle.
