Did you know?……………
- the country in the world that produces the most waste per person is Canada.*
- throwing away an aluminum pop can wastes as much energy as pouring out a half filled can of gasoline.*
- the number of trees saved by recycling one tonne of newspaper is approximately 17.*
* Source: The Recycling Council of Ontario- 3R’s Trivia.
The monetary effect is only one negative impact of not recycling. The environmental impact is even greater. As can be seen in the trivia, there is tremendous energy wasted in disposing of recyclable materials. Almost all types of paper are recyclable. We have a weekly Blue Box pick-up in The Nation- each and every household has a responsibility to divert waste.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A BLUE BOX OR YOU WISH A SECOND ONE, PLEASE CONTACT THE MUNICIPAL OFFICE. THE FIRST BLUE BOX IS FREE AND THERE IS A CHARGE OF $10.00 FOR THE SECOND ONE. WE MUST ALL DO OUR PART TO CUT WASTE MANAGEMENT COSTS- IN THE END YOU AS A TAXPAYER WILL BENEFIT THROUGH REDUCED COSTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS.

THE SCOOP ON POOP IN LIMOGES-10 BINS DESIGNATED SPECIFICALLY FOR DOGS’ EXCREMENTS PLASTIC BAGS NEWLY INSTALLED
The fruit of another initiative by the Limoges Citizens’ Committee, the Nation Municipality has recently installed ten (10) bins designated to collect ONLY plastic bags containing dog excrements.
If you are a dog owner, these new bins will make it simpler for you to dispose of your dog’s poop in a respectful manner.
3 SIMPLE STEPS: Take plastic bags with you on your walks with your dog, poop and scoop and drop your filled bags in the closest bin.
The bins, located at the following strategic points across the Village of Limoges, will be emptied on a weekly basis:
- Rear parking area Tot Park
- Bourdeau near Chad
- Main at tracks
- Main at Mabel
- Limoges Rd at Main
- Limoges Rd at tracks
- Des Pins near South Indian
- South Indian near Honoré
- Linda near Constantineau
- South Indian at trail to the park
Not only are plastic bags or dog poop left on the ground around the Village a health risk but they are also an eye-sore for everyone. It is YOUR civic responsibility as a dog owner to pick up after your dog at all times, be it on private or public property. The dog bins will be emptied weekly by municipal staff.
These small gestures on your daily routines will help maintain a clean environment for all of us. Do your part and pick up after yourself and your dog. Thank you for your contribution.
