BRUCE AREA SOLID WASTE RECYCLING
20TH ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE

Bruce Area Solid Waste Recycling (BASWR) is holding its 20th Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive to assist those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The food drive will take place September 11th-22nd.
During this two week period place CANNED food items ONLY in UNTIED plastic bags next to your blue box on your regular blue box collection day.

All food donations collected will be shipped by BASWR to the Salvation Army for distribution to families in need throughout Bruce County. Over the past 19 years, with your help, BASWR has collected over 135,000 pounds of food.

Few helpful facts:

Only accept canned goods due to animal and weather reasons
All donations should be placed in an open plastic bag beside your blue box on your regular collection day
Anyone not sure which day they are collected during the donation period can call Bruce Area Solid Waste Recycling at 519-797-5557 or 1-800-794-9770
Anyone not in BASWR's service area is welcome to deliver donations to their facility (located at 126 Conc.14, Southampton)
