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.
Area residents are encouraged to bring old batteries, paint, fluorescent tubes, etc. for recycling.
This is another community project supported by the Men’s Club members.
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.
