As responsible environmental stewards, the Town of Gananoque introduced an Electronic Waste Recycling Program in January 2011. Residents are now encouraged to drop off their E-waste at the Public Works Yard located at 665 Charles Street North (next to the water tower). A large, green, walk-in container will be open from 8am until 3pm Monday through Friday, with the exception of holidays. The Town is proud to offer this service at no charge.
