The Township of Russell does not collect organics (also known as compost).

Council discussed the possibility of collecting organics as part of the Township waste services during the 2019 Budget discussions. They chose not to start this service at this time, since it would have added $100 to each household's annual user-fee.

When more information is available from the provincial government, the Township will review the topic of collecting organics.

You can buy a backyard compost bin by paying at Town Hall at 717 Notre Dame Street, Embrun. Once your payment is received, your bin will be delivered to your house in the following week.
