We are all grateful for the beautiful and healthy environment of Neyaashiinigmiing. Every kilo of trash that we can divert extends the life of the landfill and pushes back the time when we'll have to set aside more land for another. The Roads and Sanitation Department plays a critical role in keeping our environment clean for residents now and for generations to come, but we need everybody to do their part.

We ask that residents try to keep their properties tidy, make efforts to reduce the amount of waste in the community, and recycle as much as possible. This recycling chart shows the sorts of items we can accept for recycling. Items that are not recyclable, and are also non-toxic, are considered waste and can be set out with your regular trash for pick-up.
