Recycling Bins: Cardboard, paper, magazines, newspapers, clean bottles and cans, clean foil, plastic with a recycling number on it, are acceptable materials.

Staples store in Pembroke will accept old computers and printers.

Food Digester: Take your table scraps if you do not compost at home. The Municipality has digesters for sale at the Municipal Office for $80. Note that these are not composters; they simply “digest” whatever is put into them.

Brush, leaves, and clippings can be left in the lower dump.

Islanders are permitted to use the Sheen Transfer Station facilities for a fee of $75 per season since the islands are located in Ontario.
