2018 RECYCLING STATISTICS
We endeavour to create an island community that understands the importance of caring for the land that nurtures us.
Our mission: to actively encourage, enable, and educate by providing a place for islanders to recycle and hence reduce our environmental footprint.

Spring break is one of the busiest times of the year for GIRO. The social nature of our business puts staff in close contact with people, materials and money that has been handled many times. We feel the need to be proactive in protecting our staff, volunteers and community and following the World Health Organization recommendations to reduce the risk of contamination via “social distancing”.We will keep you informed of our next open depot day and apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.
