Reminder
Due to the large volume of cardboard received at the recycling depot, the Town of Nanton is requesting that all users reduce the size of corrugated cardboard to a maximum dimension of 76 centimeters by 152 centimeters (30 inches by 60 inches) in order for the cardboard baler to function properly. All cardboard must be clean and dry, with no over-painting or wax coating. All plastic packaging, handles, food, and Styrofoam must be removed with the exception of tape.
