Christmas will be a little bit different this year without the gathering of friends and family through the holidays. A silver lining in Manitoba being in a code red restriction has highlighted the importance of supporting small and/or local businesses, food banks, local charities and nature. The City has the Tree Celebration program if you need a gift idea. The real Christmas tree depot will be at the southend of the Keystone from Dec.15-Jan.15th. Please make sure all ornaments are off the tree.
Use the Recyclepedia to find out what holiday material can be reused, recycled, composted, or disposed. The tool can be found on the City of Brandon’s website and as a mobile app. Both are available in 13 different languages, help residents determine what’s accepted in their residential recycling bins, and also supports reduced contamination. Simply type the name of an item to get started!
On behalf of the Brandon Environment Committee, Have a happy and safe holiday season!
