Two Ways to Recycle in our Community


The FoodCycler product is one aspect that would impact not only the amount of trash going into our landfill site but it does not put any burden on the municipality for the actual pick up of the trash. You can view more information on the FoodCycler by going to the website, or by visiting the Municipal Office between 8:30am to 4:00pm Monday to Friday.


From the Terracycle website..."At TerraCycle, our mission is eliminating the idea of waste. Businesses, government entities, and people like you work with us globally to keep trash out of landfills or from incineration. Through collaboration and innovation, we've developed the world's first solutions in everything from recycling to reuse."

Terracycle offers MANY recycling options for a small fee or even for FREEOne example would be the free recycling program for Coffee Pods.

Here's how to get involved with Terracycle:

  • Create a FREE account with Terracycle on the website, 
  • Collect all of your empty coffee pods as described in the Terracycle website and insert them in ANY box you desire.
  • When the box is full, log onto your Terracycle website to print a PREPAID shipping label.
  • Seal the box and send the PREPAID box to Terracycle.

This concept is available for NUMEROUS products and costs the rate payer and the municipality absolutely NOTHING
There will be an open house for 2 nights on these two new recycling programs that is open for the public to come in and ask questions.

March 8th, 2023 from 6pm to 8pm at the Council Chambers in Markstay.
March 9th, 2023 from 6pm to 8pm at the Warren Community Centre.
