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 and numerous neighbouring municipalities. The plant, known as RARE, has been in operation since the early 1990s.
