Garbage & Recycling
North Glengarry recycles and is proud of it. Not just to save the planet and our landfills, but since the Township of North Glengarry operates a large facility that receives, sorts and processes recyclables from North Glengarry residents and numerous neighbouring municipalities. The plant, known as RARE, has been in operation since the early 1990s and since it does the sorting, you don't have to. Simply make sure what you put in your blue box is recyclable and let the RARE equipment and staff do the sorting! (it sure saves time in that morning routine getting the bins and garbage to the corner).

The RARE facility has been in operation since the early 1990s and over the past few years has been growing with contracts for sorting and recycling products from neighbouring communities.
Provide maximum diversion for landfill sites in the United Counties of Stormont Dundas and Glengarry and Prescott-Russell beginning with North Glengarry.
Achieve these goals at minimum costs to the residents of North Glengarry.
Provide training and job opportunities for mentally and physically challenged individuals of our communities.
Aim at auto financing our program thereby reducing dependancy on government funding.
