A new location to drop off items that can be recycled, reused, composted or resold is open in Winnipeg, city officials announced Thursday.

The Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot, near the landfill at 1901 Brady Rd., has paved roads and landscaping, and there is no cost to drop off items — as long as they are recyclable — at the site.

"Customers will drive on paved roads instead of navigating the landfill and can drop off multiple items such as household hazardous waste, electronic waste, appliances and tires, all in one spot," said St. Norbert Coun. Janice Lukes.

Brian Mayes, chair of the city's water and waste committee, said the new location makes it easy to lessen the impact on the environment.

"With the opening of the first 4R Winnipeg Depot, Winnipeggers will have another convenient option to reduce, reuse and recycle," he said.

The news release calls the Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot the first of its kind in Winnipeg. 

The depot gives residents the opportunity to recycle more materials than before and keep these materials out of the landfill, the release says.
