SITE RESTRICTIONS AND GUIDELINES:

Trout Lake Waste Transfer and Recycling Facility Recycling Guidelines
Recyclable items are accepted at our transfer site at no charge. You do not use the punch-cards for recycling. The various bins are labeled. Please make sure to follow the instructions.

Place in one side of bin:
Plastics: Only plastic bottles #1 & #2 with screw-top caps are acceptable. Please remove the caps.
Metal Food Cans: Please rinse cans before recycling.
Tetra Packs, Juice and Milk Cartons: Please rinse and flatten.

Place in other side of bin:
Newspapers, Other Paper, Fibre Egg Cartons, Cardboard, Boxboard: Flatten all boxes. Do not place heavily coloured paper, or cardboard that is waxed in these bins.

IN A SEPARATE BIN:

Glass:
All glass bottles and jars are recyclable, please remove caps and rinse first.

Garbage:
The cost is one punch per regular-sized garbage bag. Bag maximum size is 76 cm X 96 cm (30 in X 36 in). Oversize bags will be need to use two credits or more on their punch card. A measuring box is available at the site to confirm size limitations.

lease remember that we cannot accept the following at our facility: yard, construction, or electronic waste, appliances or hazardous materials. Our services board has an agreement with the City of Thunder Bay to accept our household waste. This agreement states that our recyclable items must be properly separated and recycled, and not placed in the garbage.

It is important to remember that reducing the amount of garbage we generate naturally happens when we reduce the amount of items we buy. Try purchasing in bulk, ask yourself if you really need an item before you buy it. Re-using items also helps reduce the amount of garbage. And recycling items as listed above, and recycling your unwanted items to places such as the Salvation Army or other stores in town will help, too. If you have not done so already, start a composter this year! It is a great way to reduce the amount of garbage you make, and at the same time, you will be making a superb soil-enhancer to add to your gardens.

PUNCH CARDS ARE REQUIRED FOR USE OF THE TROUT LAKE TRANSFER SITE, PUNCH CARDS CAN BE PURCHASED AT LAPPE STORE OR Email lappeservicesboard@tbaytel.net for alternative options.
