Forests Ontario

In 2017, Forests Ontario is marking Ontario150 and Canada's sesquicentennial by celebrating the rich legacy of our forests and by establishing future forests.

Our forests are an undeniable symbol of our province. They support healthy ecosystems and address the challenges of climate change. Forests Ontario is proud to announce the launch of two initiatives and we invite your staff and residents to get involved:

Recycling Program

Effective March 1st, 2017, the Township of Southwold has made IMPROVEMENTS to our Recycling Program.  We have entered into a contract with the City of London Recycling Centre to accept our recycling materials on our behalf. 

We will be implementing a two stream blue box program.  One blue box will contain paper products and the other one will contain all other recyclable materials. 

The Township will provide every household with an additional blue box as soon as they are available.

There will no change in the pickup schedule or collection contractor.
