The Township of Madawaska Valley, in conjunction with Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery System (OVWRC), reviews and amends the recycling program to meet the demands of the recycling market. Due to these market changes, OVWRC has determined that Polystyrene (commonly referred to as Styrofoam™) and all Film Plastic (i.e. retail bags, bread bags, blue newspaper bags, outside milk bags, etc.) will be removed from the recycling program. These materials add significant costs to the recycling operations and end markets to receive this material are limited.
Plastic Bags, styrofoam WHITE ONLY (cups, plates, meat trays, rigid packaging) and paper coffee cups (lids removed) will not be accepted as recycling please sort as GARBAGE.
