The Town of Collingwood Parks, Recreation, & Culture Department launches The Stage Door and Re:Event on Wednesday, July 8 and Wednesday, July 15 respectively. The two new virtual series will air on Facebook Live @SimcoeStreetTheatre on alternating Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, beginning this Wednesday, July 8.
With the high temperatures forecast for the next few days, the Town of Collingwood is making the Central Park Arena available as a Cooling Centre for the public daily from 11:00 AM until the humidity and/or temperature drops each evening. Please exercise physical distancing while using the Cooling Centre.
This is a reminder that drains (e.g. sinks and toilets) are not dumping grounds for garbage. Garbage often found in the Town’s sanitary system includes single-use wipes, paper towels, cleaning products, rubber gloves, diapers, feminine hygiene products, hazardous materials and food. These materials don’t break down like toilet paper and can cause damage to our wastewater infrastructure by clogging pipes and sewer mains, damaging pumps, and most importantly it puts operators at risk when they have to clean out and repair the damaged equipment.
