PITCH-IN DAY   pitch in logo

A volunteer road side clean-up program is held every spring.  On Pitch In Day, volunteers start as early as they wish and finish by noon.  Lunch is then provided at the Grenville Fish & Game Club. Bag pick up starts at 1pm. Keep watch on our website and on our Facebook page for when the next Pitch In Day will be.  Thank you again to all of our volunteers for their continued dedication to keeping Augusta Clean & Green.


Recycling and composting reduces the waste that is collected and transported at our Transfer Stations. The more we recycle and compost the higher the waste diversion rate. If we can divert more waste from the transfer station, the township will receive additional funding from Stewardship Ontario to assist in the operation and promotion of recycling at the Transfer Stations.


As per the Township’s Harassment By-Law 2930-2012, Augusta is committed to a Safe Working Environment for all employees, including those at our Waste Management sites.
