St. Peters' proactive approach to environmental issues keeps our City green. Our recycling program began in the mid-90's and kicked into full gear when our central materials processing facility, Recycle City, opened in 1998. Our Earth Centre facility processes yard waste and recycles it into usable products for your garden. We have also been proactive in many ways in saving energy, from renewable energy for the parks, to retrofitting City buildings with energy-saving equipment, to using Nitrogen in the tires of City vehicles and offering this service to our residents to help them save energy as well.
