Recycling in Head, Clara & Maria

Thank you for your interest in our Municipal Recycling Program.  In February of 2007, our municipality contracted with a small firm to collect recyclables.  Our contractors request that all materials be cleaned and placed in clear (transparent) plastic bags for collection.  This prevents materials from absorbing water from rain or snow and making them more difficult to collect and process.


The Township is responsible for maintaining 18 km of rural gravel roads.  Each year the Council of the Municipality of the United Townships of Head, Clara & Maria requests the cooperation of all persons in keeping vehicles from obstructing snow removal operations in the Municipality and in refraining from placing snow from private property onto Municipal roadways. Notification is placed in the local newspaper in October or November. Necessary action will be taken against persons contravening the Highway Traffic Act in this respect.
