Inclement weather on curb side collection day can cause residents and the recyclable materials collector some issues on rainy, snowy and/or windy days.  We request that each homeowner place a heavy object (such as a board, paving stone, rock) on top of the materials in the blue box on days of high winds.  We also suggest you write your name and address on your blue box(es).
For rain or snow days there will be loss of certain materials (paper, box board, cardboard) from getting wet, but this is expected and taken into consideration with the use of boxes.
Any questions regarding a recycling symbol on an item or whether an item is recyclable under OUR program, please give us a call at the Town of Stonewall Office 204-467-7979 or by e-mail
