 Kincardine Community Environment Committee

The Kincardine Community Environment Committee provides advice to Council on environmental stewardship. 

They assist municipal staff with the protection, restoration and conservation of the natural environment in the municipality.  

 Green Cone Digesters
 

Green Cone Digesters are now available for purchase at the Kincardine Waste Management Centre.

The Municipality of Kincardine in conjunction with the County of Bruce now has a limited quantity of green cones for purchase.

 

The Green Cone Digester is a smart, easy-to-use, efficient household tool, which reduces waste and eliminates most of the problem of food disposal. It’s a clean, healthy way to minimize your family’s kitchen trash while helping the environment.
