MUNICIPAL RECYCLING

Effective December 31, 2014, the recycling depots in downtown Temagami and in Temagami North will no longer be open. The Cochrane-Timiskaming Waste Management Board will empty the bins for the last time on that date and then the Municipal Curbside collection will begin. The first scheduled pick up is scheduled for

Wednesday, January 14, 2015 and will continue on a bi-weekly schedule from that point on. Recycling bins have been ordered and will be delivered to affected residents before the first scheduled pick up date. A list of recyclable items and any instructions will be provided with the recycling bin.

The Marten River Community and the depot located at the end of the Lake Temagami Access Road will continue as usual but the urban area will now receive curbside recycling effective in January 2015. The area to receive curbside recycling will be the area currently receiving garbage pick up.The Municipality continues to investigate options related to residents located in rural areas and at the east end of Lake Temagami who would normally have used the bins located in Downtown Temagami or in Temagami North. If you are a resident located in an area outside of the normal garbage pick area and would have previously used the recycling depots in downtown Temagami or Temagami North, please notify the Municipality by emailing publicworks@temagami.ca or by calling 705-569-3272.
