Diverting more of our waste to recycling and composting will extend the life of our landfills and reduce costs to the Township and its taxpayers.

A HUGE Thank You to all the residents, organizations, groups and associations that took time once again this year to wade into ditches, swamps and shorelines following the elusive garbage trail. It takes a lot of concerned and conscientious residents to gather together to ensure the beauty of our Township shines through! Suggestions on how to improve our Pitch In efforts are always encouraged so please email ideas/comments to fswsupport@southfrontenac.net.

Again Thank You, you know who you are!

Enhance, Conserve & Protect Our Environment.
