Waste Management - Locations and Hours of Operation
Ponoka County residents now have an option for their recyclables after the Town of Ponoka has announced its decision to close its downtown collections centre.
After the announcement that the town would move its centre to the town transfer station, Ponoka County residents looked at other options available to them, explained County Assistant CAO Tom Webber. County residents will now be able to take recyclables to the County transfer site in the Southwest Industrial Park.
There are 16 bins that will be available for collection of recyclable items. Acceptable are plastic containers stamped with a recycle symbol, tin or aluminum cans, cardboard and non-glass drink containers. Bins are marked with signage to help users sort properly. Some materials such, as glass and styrofoam are not accepted in the recyclables.
It benefits everyone as the goal is less materials going into the landfill.
