Waste Reduction & Recycling

recyclingThroughout the library you will notice several types of waste containers. The stainless steel ones are made in Lunenburg by ABCO Industries and were designed by Nova Scotia Community College students to meet Nova Scotia recycling rules. Also, the Eastern Region Solid Waste Management Committee provided several of the wire recycling units.

Please help us, and your community, by sorting your waste while at the library and at home and work.



water fillerIn the Bistro Area you will notice a drinking water dispenser, sometimes known as a hydration station. It encourages the use of refillable bottles. The water is from the Town supply but is "polished" or filtered to remove chlorine and other odours. It encourages healthy activity (such as walking or jogging) and also counts how many bottles have been saved from the landfill.
