Garbage and Recycling
Recycling has become the most effective way to reduce the amount of garbage going to our landfill sites. The Council is committed to improving the waste diversion activities in Laurentian Hills to prolong the life of our landfill site. The more we can recycle, the better for the environment and our wallets. Help your community by continuing to recycle what you can and remember to make use of the Re-Use area at the Landfill Site.
