WINNIPEG — The city has opened the third 4R Winnipeg Depot to handle recycled material.
The new depot at 429 Panet Road provides easy access for customers to drop off recyclable materials, which are later reused, composted or resold.
If by December 27th you’ve had it with the Christmas season, the city’s Let’s Chip In depots will be more than happy to take your tree.
The depots will remain open until January 31, 2018. Residents are reminded that trees placed at the curb next to recycling or garbage carts will not be collected.
The community recycling depot at Garden City Shopping Centre will close October 31.
The city says the facility is permanently closing at the request of the mall’s management.
WINNIPEG — Litter rates for empty beverage containers are decreasing across Manitoba as more people toss them into the recycle bin instead of the landfill.
New numbers from the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association (CBCRA) and its Recycle Everywhere program show both Winnipeg and Brandon deceased their litter rates by 74 and 87 percent, respectively, in 2017.
Recycle Everywhere was in Falcon Lake over the weekend in an effort to encourage Manitobans to recycle, well, everywhere, including the cottage.
A crew from Recycle Everywhere was joined by Manitoba Minister of Sustainable Development Cathy Cox for a barbecue in Falcon Lake Saturday where over around 300 Bin Bags were handed out to cottagers to use for collecting recyclables while at the lake.

WINNIPEG — Of all the beverage containers that weren’t recycled, how many were yours? Hopefully, fewer than the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association would like to see.
The CBCRA, which runs the Recycle Everywhere program, is expanding its reach by partnering with the Manitoba government on three initiatives.
WINNIPEG — Beverage containers recycled in the Exchange District have made up more than 100,000 pounds of recyclables in the last four years.
