Waste Collection / Recycling
The Township of Dawn-Euphemia Council now provides for automated collection for the entire Township. Blue Water Recycling delivered one new "wheelie" waste bin and one new recycle bin to all residential properties in October 2017. The bins were delivered to the edge of your property, in the same location they should be placed by you for collection. Please see the bi-weekly "Waste and Recycling Collection Schedule" below. The following link provides more information on the waste and recycling programs available in the Township.
