Hinton's Municipal Government has made recycling a priority. From regular household recycling to the collection and safe disposal of dangerous goods, we can recycle a significant amount of the refuse that we produce in our daily lives. In 2016, access to free, cardboard recycling was eliminated. GFR and Waste Management has both been active in the community ensuring that all businesses that produce cardboard have a means of recycling that material.
