  1. Bag, tie and place all tissues, gloves, disinfectant wipes or anything used to sanitize in your BLACK CART.
  2. To reduce the chances of transmission of COVID-19 please ensure all waste fits in the cart with the lid closed.

The City of Chestermere is committed to recycling as many materials as possible to keep them out of landfills and to protect the environment.
