North Glengarry recycling bins

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. The plant, known as RARE, has been in operation since the early 1990s. Please note, North Glengarry collects different types of recycling materials on alternate weeks.
