WELCOME TO MANITOUWADGE
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING GARBAGE COLLECTION
December 5, 2013
Please be advised that the Township of Manitouwadge has been forced to cancel Garbage Collection days within the Municipality because we are unable to access the Landfill Site due to road conditions.
Ongoing efforts to resolve this issue with various Ministries and Ministers have not been successful and we are still unsure of the future of the road known as Caramat Road which is provincially owned.
Our Landfill site is located approximately 7 km on this road and it is now snow covered, unplowed and has become a hazard for our workers and residents.
Because of health and safety concerns with the condition of this road, we will not be sending our equipment or employees to the Landfill site until such time as it is plowed and made safe for our residents and employees.
Businesses are encouraged to break down boxes and flatten garbage before putting it into their dumpsters to help provide them with more room to store garbage until such time that it can be picked up.
Businesses may consider using their dumpsters for kitchen waste only and keep their cardboard and non-perishable waste separate from their dumpsters until such time as it may be picked up by the Township.
Residents are encouraged to place only kitchen waste in your garbage cans and keep non-perishables separate.
The Township will continue its effort to have this issue resolved in a timely matter but ask that both businesses and residents be patient and we apologize for any inconveniences that this may cause.
