A Message from the Nipigon Eco-Team

We currently do not run a plastics/glass recycling program due to budget constraints.

Do your part to reduce plastic/glass waste in our town by using refillable water bottles, or choosing items with less packaging.

**NEW** Nipigon’s mini water bar is now available for use at local events.  The water bar is meant for outdoor use, and must be hooked up to a potable water source.  Please contact Suzanne Kukko edo@nipigon.net for more information.

Let’s all do our part to keep Nipigon beautiful.  If you have any suggestions on other green initiatives for our town, contact the Nipigon Eco-Team 887-3135 ext 26.
