The Municipality of Meaford is cancelling the Electronic Waste drop-off days for January and February.
The Electronic Waste program is run through the volunteer efforts of the Meaford Fire Department and held on the second and fourth Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. During the current province-wide shutdown, the January 23rd, February 13th and 27th dates have been cancelled to avoid non-essential travel by the public and uphold the health and safety of our fire fighters as front-line staff.
In addition to cancelling drop-off dates as a result of COVID-19, Municipal staff have recently been made aware of operational changes needed in 2021 to ensure the proper management of items accepted at the depot. A review of the program is currently under way and additional program changes may be announced in the coming months.
Currently, the Electronic Waste program is operated at no cost to Municipal tax payers and diverts waste from landfills. The Meaford Fire Department oversees the program with proceeds from recyclables going towards a Training Centre build.
As part of the regularly scheduled processing of material collected, the Electronic Waste bins have been removed from their location at 87 Stewart Street, Meaford. Please hold on to your electronic waste items at this time and avoid dropping it off at the Fire Department.
