- Cut grass?
You can simply leave it on the lawn – it’s a natural fertilizer! (If you want to put your grass clippings in the bin, let them dry first.)
- Fireplace and barbecue ashes?
Spread them on your garden – they are an excellent source of potassium.
- Meat leftovers?
Wrap them in newspaper before putting them in the brown bin.
- Items that are not accepted in the regular collection?
Please note that Fletcher Mechanics, at 3040, ch. Capelton, accepts a number of items for recycle, including:
– Waste oil and containers
– Automotive filters
– Batteries (cars, trucks, boats), with a $5 remittance per battery
