Please keep your cardboard separate and bundled for ease of handling at the truck.
RECYCLING COLLECTION CONTINUES TO BE BI-WEEKLY.

Practice Water Conservation – Reduce Water Use By 10%
Voluntary water conservation makes it simple to save:
- Repair all leaks around the home.
- If you must water your lawn, early morning or late evening watering reduces evaporation.
- Use a pail of soapy water to wash your car and rinse it off quickly with a hose.
- Water plants with water collected in a rain barrel.
- If you must run the tap, save the excess water for watering plants.

FIRE & RESCUE DEPARTMENT
STAND BY YOUR PAN! Cooking fires can start in a flash!
Did you know that cooking is the number one cause of home fires in Ontario? Many of these fires start because pots and pans are left unattended on the stove. So next time you cook, your fire department encourages you to STAND BY YOUR PAN.
If you must leave the kitchen when you’re cooking, turn off the stove and remove the pot from the burner especially if you are using oil or high temperatures.
