This Friday, April 3, there is a scheduled pick-up for the Saugeen Ward (visit SaugeenShores.ca/Recycling for info) and we are asking that people on that route hold on to your blue box material for one cycle, if possible, and it will be sent for recycling on April 17.
Thank you for your patience during this time and a big thank you to BASWR for their quick response!
To protect its employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bruce Area Solid Waste Recycling (BASWR) has made the difficult decision to stop sorting recyclables by hand, both at their facility and curbside. In Saugeen Shores, materials will still be picked up on their normal recycling day, but will be sent to the landfill temporarily.
BASWR is working on a longer-term solution to find a place that can accept the unsorted material. If possible, please consider holding on to recyclable materials in the meantime.
As well, the Southampton Landfill is closed to the public. Account holders will be allowed access on March 27 and April 3 from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm only. Help us flatten the curve and keep our employees safe by using curbside garbage collection on your regular day.
When the COVID-19 situation improves, BASWR and the Southampton Landfill will return to normal operations. Stay updated with the latest changes on our COVID-19 updates page: www.SaugeenShores.ca/COVID-19.
We appreciate your understanding. We are in this together.
