Leaves, Leaves, Everywhere! If you’re not using your leaves for your won compost, think about bringing them to the Town’s Compost Centre.

There are still FREE Kitchen Compost Containers available at the Town Office (one per household)


We collect all metals at our Town Depot-Compost Centre, in the Metal Sign area. We will also take your metal food containers, ex: soup cans, tuna cans, coffee cans, bean & cat food cans etc. Make sure you rinse out any food first. If you want the lid to be recycled, put it inside the can and slightly squeeze the opening to ensure it stays in.


The Town of Holyrood is partnering with Holy Cross Elementary in Recycling 2011-12, All the Way to the Top! Our goal is to collect 200,000 containers in 2011. You can drop your containers off at Holy Cross or at the Town Depot.

The following items will be collected for the school:

  • Tetra Paks
  • Aluminum Drinking Cans
  • Plastic Drinking Bottles
  • Glass Beverage Bottles (liquor/wine bottles)

Curbside Recycling

Beginning April 2011, the Town’s Waste Management provider will collect paper products, cardboard and other recyclables at the roadside. A public information package is currently being developed and will be provided in time to launch this new venture.
