Message from Norpen

Message from NORPEN that we have been asked to share with residents.

Winter is right around the corner and with that comes snow! It is understood that waste bins will have to be moved back to allow for snow clearing within communities. However, please keep in mind that waste collection is curbside. NorPen’s mandate is to provide a fast and efficient waste collection service and that is only possible with the cooperation of all residents. We are asking for your cooperation in ensuring that your waste is at the curb by 8:00 a.m. on collection day.
