The Bruce County Transportation and Environmental Services Department will be holding a municipal hazardous and special waste collection event in Sauble Beach at the Amabel Works Yard.
This is another community project supported by the Sauble & Area Men’s Club members.
Used batteries piling up? Tripping over old cans of paint? Here’s your chance to get more space in your garage and dispose of your household hazardous and special waste materials in an environmentally friendly manner.
Area residents are encouraged to bring old batteries, paint, fluorescent tubes, used oil, propane tanks, household cleaners, pesticides, etc. for recycling.
We are once again looking for volunteers (6) to assist with directing traffic and the collection process to move items from vehicles to the appropriate bins for sorting. We are provided with the personal protective equipment required for the work (i.e. gloves, vests and eye protection) as well as refreshments. Volunteers are required to have CSA approved steel toe boots and attend an orientation and health and safety session 20 minutes before the start of the event.
Please call or email Alf Roth to volunteer your help.

This annual tournament is once again being held at Bannister Park with play starting promptly at 3 p.m. The format will be a round robin double knockout with the first team to score 11 points winning that match and moving on while those teams not winning move on to B flight. The tournament will be followed by a barbecue (burgers, country baked beans, watermelon, cold drinks, etc) which starts at approximately 5 p.m. This will be followed by the presentation of prizes and the coveted Bocce trophy so plan to join us for a great time!
* this is a family event so bring along any family who may be visiting. There is a very nice play centre at Bannister Park to keep the young ones amused while bocce is being played. Be sure to bring a lawn chair, hat, sunscreen and wear comfortable shoes
* you don’t have to be in the tournament to come out. Spectators are welcome to join us and cheer on your favorite team and enjoy the meal
* we will be sending out a “reply “ email at the end of July to get a count as to how many are coming so we can be prepared with the food – watch for it in your “in box“
* we also need you to bring your set of bocce balls – 10 sets is good for this tournament but extras always welcome
P.S. we are looking for a Coordinator for this event as new blood for our events is important to their longevity – please talk to Lloyd Sheridan, our present coordinator, and we will get you all set up. Its easy so give it a try
