Township of Faraday — Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Days

Recycle Instructions (PDF 68KB)

Questions: Faraday Municipal Office, 613-332-3638

Please remember the 3 R's, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Compost as much food waste as possible. The more we do this then the longer we can use the present waste site and the less expensive it will be for the township, taxpayers, and you.

If you enjoy campfires in the evening then try burning items such as cardboard, drinking cups etc., in the campfire.

Old worn-out wooden furniture, brush and tree limbs can be dropped-off at the waste site at the burn pile section. The attendants will burn it for you later.

Well Water

Clean wells can provide cool, clean groundwater for you and your family. We depend on this precious water every day for cooking, washing, and drinking water. We must take care of our wells and groundwater for the sake of future generations. View events and forums that will be held in neighbourhoods across the province. Test your well water at least three times a year.

Rural wells can provide livelihood in rural areas through clean groundwater. They also have potential to be areas for contaminants. Old, abandoned wells that were not sealed properly allow surface contaminants to become point source contaminants.
