COVID-19

The Association is continuously monitoring the situation.


Dear customer,

The Bluewater Recycling Association has always placed its customers as our top priority, and our commitment to you has only increased during this period of uncertainty. You can rest assured that Association is working tirelessly every day to ensure the continuity of our services, and to provide you with access to the services you need. In addition, we are closely monitoring the situation and will do everything in our power to continually adapt our business processes as necessary.

Here are some of the measures currently in place as a result of the pandemic.
1) Our public drop off at the Material Recovery Facility is closed.  Until further notice, we will not allow residents to drop off e-waste or recyclables at our processing facility.  This is a precautionary measure for our employees to minimize their exposure to anyone in the community that may be carrying the virus.  
2) Our automated collection launches in Adelaide Metcalfe, Bluewater, Grey, McKillop, and Warwick have been postponed to June.  You will receive the instructional flyers shortly.  The new wheelie bins will be delivered to you during the month of May.  Do not use the bin until the program starts in accordance to your flyer.  The flyer is also available for download on this website under your municipality.
3) Most of our administrative staff is working remotely.  With the current volumes of inquiries it may take longer than usual to receive a reply.  We appreciate your patience.

Our staff is committed to continue to service you but to do so, we need to protect their health and safety and limit their risk of exposure.  We thank you for your understanding and look forward to returning to normal practices soon.  We know this situation is exceptional and we are determined to continue providing you with the personalized support you are accustomed to receiving from Association.

Guidelines for safe waste disposal during global COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Place used tissues and napkins in the garbage. Wash your hands afterwards.
  • Bag all waste. Do not place waste loosely in garbage containers
  • If you’re sick: place ANY item that has come into contact with your mouth, nose or eyes into the garbage – even items that you normally place into your recycling bin (eg. water/beverage bottles, pop cans, etc.).

We will update www.bra.org and www.facebook.com/bluewaterrecyclingassociation/ with any further developments. We are committed to meeting or exceeding the government's guidance during this crisis as the health and safety of our customers and employees remains our top priority.

Thank you.
