The R.M. would like to thank residents for their continued cooperation with recycling. Recycling numbers continue to rise in our municipality showing that residents do care about the environment and we truly appreciate these efforts. Everyone is doing a great job and we hope to see numbers rise even more.
A great resource of information on recycling can be found at Simply Recycle. If you are unsure of what items you can recycle, go to Recyclepedia. If you bring your recycling in a plastic bag, please empty the items from the bag and continue re-using your bags.

PLASTIC RECYCLING MADE EASY!

UPDATES TO PESTICIDE AND FERTILIZER CONTAINER COLLECTION PROGRAM
- Cleanfarms operates the collection program for <23L pesticide and fertilizer containers on behalf of Canada’s leading developers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers of pest control products and fertilizers. Together, these companies support good stewardship, in and away from the field.
- Over the next 3 years (2022 to 2024) the collection of <23L containers will transition from a municipal collection model to an ag-retail collection model.
- Due to the volume of pesticide containers collected at the Earl Grey & Clandeboye Waste Disposal Grounds (WDG’s), the RM of St. Andrews is one of the 1st locations to close down the pesticide and fertilizer collection facilities at our WDG’s.
- Since Spring 2022, ag-retail locations can collect <23L containers. The collection of pesticide containers at the WDG’s stopped as of the last pickup of containers that occurred in October.
- Residents must now return their agricultural pesticide and fertilizer containers to the ag-retail outlet where they were purchased.
- Regular Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) can continue to be dropped off at the Earl Grey WDG as that is the only HHW collection depot in St. Andrews.
Glass recycle bins are provided at both waste disposal grounds for glass deposit only. Glass can also be deposited in the regular recycle bins located at the South St. Andrews Fire Hall and St. Andrews Airport.
