The Panet Road 4R Winnipeg Depot (429 Panet Road) will be Winnipeg’s third 4R Winnipeg Depot location and will serve the east side of Winnipeg.
“The City’s 4R Winnipeg Depot program has helped divert thousands of tonnes of material since starting in early 2016,” said Brian Mayes, Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Water and Waste, Riverbank Management and the Environment. “I am confident that the Panet Road 4R Winnipeg Depot will be very popular with the public and will continue to help us keep recyclable materials out of our landfills.”
Customers can use 4R Winnipeg Depots FREE of charge as long as all of the materials dropped off are recyclable.
4R Winnipeg Depots accept the following materials, free of charge:
- scrap metal
