The City of Timmins Celebrates Global Recycling Day 
The City of Timmins is recognizing Global Recycling Day on Thursday, March 18 by celebrating the success of the City’s recycling and diversion programs.

Between 2015 and 2020, the Curbside Residential Recycling program has diverted 15,561,189 kilograms of recyclable material from being landfilled. A further 9,284 gallons of waste oil, 40,100 pounds of textiles, 55,302 kilograms of hazardous waste and 1,962,214 kilograms of scrap metal, electronics, tires and batteries have also been diverted through the City of Timmins’ various recycling and diversion programs.

“The City of Timmins is continuously striving to improve recycling and diversion programs,” says Environmental Coordinator Christina Beaton. “We encourage residents to utilize the Timmins Recyclepedia Waste Wizard to learn how and where to properly recycle or dispose of over 400 materials.”

The mission of Global Recycling Day is to not only highlight the importance of recycling to ensure the health of our planet, but also encourage people to think of goods in terms of resource, not disposable waste. The City of Timmins makes it easy to recycle with the Timmins Recyclepedia app. The Timmins Recyclepedia app uses interactive features to provide residents with information on collection schedules and how to properly dispose of various items. There’s even a waste sorting game that makes learning how to recycle fun and easy.

Download the Timmins Recyclepedia app today to receive service alerts, disruptions and more directly to your phone.
