RECYCLING NOTICE – Wednesday August 12th

THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF COCHRANE

Recycling Notice

To the Attention of Cochrane Residents and Business Owners:

As of Wednesday, August 12th, 2020, the Town of Cochrane will resume recycling disposal at the Recycling Transfer Station at 92 Second Street (Infrastructure Services).  The Infrastructure Services office is closed, and the public will need to call our office at the number below prior to arrival. We will have an attendant open the gate and the load of recycling will be checked for contamination prior to disposal.

REMINDER!

Items such as wood pallets, chemical containers (DEF fluid, aerosol chemicals, antifreeze jugs), glass, plastic film, food, diapers, pails (including oil pails), hydraulic hoses, garbage (food waste, food in containers), clothing, and black garbage bags are not acceptable.

As of Monday August 17th, 2020, the Town of Cochrane will be conducting audits of recycling bins and will be turning away any bins that are contaminated. If you receive a  RED TAG on your bin this means that your bin contained unacceptable material and must be removed before it will be collected.

REMINDER!

Wash all food residue out of containers, throw glass materials in the garbage, and when in doubt, throw it out. Contamination in a load of recycling costs the Town (Taxpayers) money and may cause the load to be shipped to landfill instead of producing a recycled product. Also, place your bins two (2) feet apart in a suitable location (on roadside) for the waste and recycling truck to pick it up.

If you find a bright red tag on your bin, it could have been a result of contamination or the bins were improperly placed.

Please call or email Infrastructure Services for more information if you have questions about recycling materials.

2020 CIP Financial Incentives Launch

THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF COCHRANE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Announcing the 2020 launch for the Town of Cochrane Community Improvement Plan Financial Incentives!

The Town of Cochrane Economic Development Department is now booking pre-consultations and accepting applications for the 2020 launch of the Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Financial Incentive Programs.

The CIP establishes a comprehensive set of financial incentive programs that are intended to achieve the goals of the CIP by encouraging private sector development and investment in Cochrane. CIPs allow municipalities to provide micro-funding to eligible businesses willing to improve/expand their business within established guidelines. The incentive programs presented are intended to respond to the local needs and opportunities to be addressed through the Plan.

The financial incentive programs have been created to encourage private sector redevelopment in Cochrane, particularly with respect to the Town’s downtown commercial areas. Applicants may use individual incentive programs or combine multiple complementary programs for a single site or development, unless otherwise stipulated under the individual programs. The purpose, description, and eligibility requirements for each financial incentive program are outlined in the CIP. Eligible projects may also be augmented with other federal and provincial funding programs.

Prior to submitting an application for one or more of the financial incentive programs in this CIP, applicants are required to have a pre-application consultation meeting with the Town of Cochrane Economic Development Department. The Town will help you complete this application and advise you of your eligibility of programs. The Town will also indicate which supporting materials are required for your application. If you would like more information or if you are interested in applying for any of the CIP Financial Incentive Programs, please contact kaitlyn.monsma@cochraneontario.com to book a pre-consultation.

KIRKLAND LAKE GOLD HELPS SMALL BUSINESSES OPEN THEIR DOORS

 

 

Kirkland Lake Gold has answered the call to help combat the spread of COVID-19 and help our small businesses re-open their doors!

 

Kirkland Lake Gold has graciously donated $10,000 worth of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) packages to small non-franchise businesses within our community.  The PPE contained in these packages include a box of masks, two bottles of sanitizer, and one large container of sanitizing wipes.

 

“Kirkland Lake Gold is committed to providing a safe working environment,” stated Tony Makuch, President and CEO of Kirkland Lake Gold.  “Covid-19 has reminded us that health and safety reach beyond the worksite and into the communities where our employees and their families live and interact with others. We are pleased to work with the Town of Cochrane to help create a safe environment for all community members and ensure everyone can work and go home safe and healthy.”

 

The Town of Cochrane is grateful for this donation from Kirkland Lake Gold. We are proud of the PPE contribution that will help to ensure that our businesses are protected while they do their job and support our community during this time.

 

For a business to be eligible to receive a box, the business must be local to the Town of Cochrane, and the business must not be operating under a franchise. The PPE boxes will be distributed through the Town of Cochrane Economic Development Department on a first come, first serve basis.  If you own or operate a small business in need of PPE, please email ‘Kaitlyn.monsma@cochraneontario.com’ to obtain information on how to receive a box, as limited quantities are available.
