About Portage


Since the municipal recycling service around the Cassidy Lake area is quite limited, Portage Atlantic residents took the initiative to create their own recycling program for the rehabilitation centre.

Residents built and decorated several sets of recycling boxes, each for a different category of recyclable, which have been placed around the centre.  Members of Portage’s Leos Club have taken on the task of collecting the recyclables from the boxes to be brought to the local recycling depot.

Money raised from the return of these items is being put towards recreational activities for the youth in treatment.
