It has recommended changes for both islands, for Howe Island it is recommended that the current recycling depot on Howe Island be replaced by road side collection of blue box recyclables.
Wolfe Island Waste Disposal Site
Wolfe Island Waste Disposal Site is nearing capacity and Council has determined that the waste area should be closed on April 30, 2015.
