RECYCLING PROGRAM

The Town of North River is pleased to announce that we will be launching a Bi-Weekly Recycling Program.

 The Town of North River wants to be part of making a conscious effort to be environmentally friendly and reducing the cost of garbage collection.

How do we recycle? This would involve residents sorting their garbage. Recyclables would be sorted into 2 groups: containers and paper products and placed in clear bags and put out with your regular garbage collection every 2 weeks. Another important part of recycling is to ensure the items being disposed of are clean and have no leftover food or liquid in them. The cleaned recyclables can then be placed in a clear bag and put out with your regular garbage bi-weekly. An information package will be mailed out to residents in the near future and also available on our website and FB page.

We also have an account set up at the Green Depot in Bay Roberts in the name of the Town of North River and all proceeds will go to our recreation program for those who wish to bring their recyclables there.

We encourage all residents to help us make this recycling program a successful one.

Wishing our Residents, their families and friends near and far a Merry Christmas & a Very Happy Healthy New Year

 

Where did this year go, I can't believe it is almost Christmas again, seems like yesterday we put the decorations away and now we have them out and putting them up again. Time goes way too fast.

 

I believe that The Town North River has experienced a very successful, prosperous year and am very proud of the things we have accomplished.  Your Council will continue to work hard and with your support we will keep moving our town forward.

 

We have been very fortunate to have had quite a few community gatherings over the past year, which I must say have been very well attended and positively commented on. We have had a lot of firsts since becoming your council, and to name them:  1st Tree Lighting, 1st Cross-generation program, 1st community garden, 1st Canada Day Celebration, 1st Thanksgiving Dinner, 1st Guy Fawkes Night Bon Fire, and 1st Santa Claus Parade. We also ran a very successful Summer Camp for children of our town who were between the ages of 5 & 12. Those events add much to community spirit and create memories for our children that will live on in their hearts and minds forever.

 

During this past fall we received a much needed upgrade to our main road which began at the North River Veterans Overpass and extended East for two kilometres. We are anticipating completion of the remaining 3 kilometres in the summer of 2019.

 

We are currently working to renovate our Town Hall and thank you for your patience while construction is in progress, it should be finished early in the New Year and will have a public meeting for you all to attend.

 

We have to thank the Provincial Department of Children Seniors and Social Development and Service Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program for funding. We want to thank: our MHA Ms Elizabeth Parsley, and our MP The Honourable Mr. Ken McDonald for their ease of contact and support throughout the year.

 

As the season approaches, we wish you all a Very Merry Christmas Season and a New Year filled with much good health and happiness. Spread kindness wherever possible and be good to each other.
