Winnipeggers have exciting new way to recycle more than ever before
Released: 10:00 a.m.
Winnipeg, MB - Beginning today, residents will be able to drop off items that can be recycled, reused, composted or resold, along with their regular household waste, at the new Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot.
“With the opening of the first 4R Winnipeg Depot, Winnipeggers will have another convenient option to reduce, reuse and recycle,” said Brian Mayes, Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Water and Waste, Riverbank Management and the Environment. “This new service will make it easier for all of us to lessen our impact on the environment.”
The Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot is the first of its kind in Winnipeg, and will give residents the opportunity to recycle more materials than ever before and keep these materials out of the landfill. There is no cost to customers using the Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot, if all of the material that is dropped off is recyclable.
“The new 4R Winnipeg Depot will provide a first class, state of the art facility for residents to bring their recycling - free of charge” said Janice Lukes, City Councillor for St. Norbert. “Customers will drive on paved roads instead of navigating the landfill and can drop off multiple items such as household hazardous waste, electronic waste, appliances and tires, all in one spot.”
Located at the Brady Road Resource Management Facility (Brady Road Landfill) at 1901 Brady Road, the Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot will replace the current drop off point for garbage within the landfill, and give users a new experience with a safer, more pleasant environment that features paved roads, landscaping and a convenient one-stop shop format.
Residents will be able to drop off the following materials in the recycling and reuse areas, free of charge:
electronic waste such as televisions, computers and cell phones
household hazardous waste including household cleaners, paint and propane tanks
Any remaining materials that are not accepted in the recycling and reuse areas will be accepted as garbage for a fee.
4R Winnipeg Depots are an important part of Winnipeg’s Garbage and Recycling Master Plan to keep more than half our garbage out of the landfill by giving residents more ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. The plan includes up to three more 4R Winnipeg Depots.
