  • The Town of Unity and Loraas Disposal have now implemented curb side recycling. Glass is not permitted in these bins, to be disposed of in the yellow bin west of the Public Works Shop building. Styrofoam is not accepted and must be disposed on in your regular garbage/tag-a-bag bags. SARCAN is still collecting their approved products as well. Clothing may be dropped off at the Unity Community Resource Centre (New to You Clothing) at 210 Main Street, during their regular hours only.
  • RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING: Ensure bins are out by curbs by 7 am the day of pickup; park at least 4 ft from bins; place products loose in bins (do not bag or tie); do not overfill or place product on top of bins.
