Small appliances such as dehumidifiers, air conditioners, mini fridges and freezers etc. can now be brought to the Waste Management Site and Thessalon Transfer Site and placed with the E-Waste at no charge to the residents all year round.

Huron St. Construction Update

Pioneer Construction is currently putting up traffic control signage for the road closure and detour route. They have advised that they will be closing Huron St. and the intersection of Main St. and Huron St. on Wednesday May 8, 2024.

Attention: Huron St. Construction

Pioneer Construction has advised us that they will begin laying out infrastructure for the temporary water system along Huron St. Essentially, piping will be laid parallel to Huron St along the property lines of the street and across driveways. Piping placed over driveways will have ramping placed over them to allow home owners to drive over the pipes. It is anticipated that Pioneer will begin work on tying the temporary water system to the Town’s water system as early as next Monday (May 6, 2024), where there will be temporary water service interruptions to residents in the Huron St area and potentially businesses on Main St. Pioneer is to provide us with a schedule for service interruptions in the very near future.
