RECYCLING IN TERRACE BAY PAYS!

Recycle between June and October and you could win Chamber Bucks valued at $50!

 

It Pays to Recycle is a Terrace Bay initiative designed to increase the percentage of households that participate in our curbside recycling program.

Each month, from June until October, the Township will randomly select 10 house numbers. Residents of the selected houses, having left recycling at the curb, will find one of two hangers of their door—one for $50 in Chamber Bucks if you left recycling on the curb or one for plastic bags if you didn’t. Hangers can be redeemed for Chamber Bucks (no cash equivalent) at the Municipal Office.

Residential curbside pickup takes place on the last Thursday of every month.

Recycling is smart, as it returns items into active use that would otherwise go to the landfill. It also saves you money by reducing the volume of waste you set out each week!
