Do your part in protecting our environment by recycling at your Fergus apartment. Find more information in today’s post, compiled by the blog team at our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel.

 

Look for the blue

 

Recycling in Wellington County is relatively simple. Keep an eye out for a blue bin. These specially coloured containers are for recycling only. They are collected weekly in city limits and bi-weekly in less populated areas. Items that can be recycled include flattened cardboard, paper of all types, aluminum, tin, glass and plastic bottles, jugs and tubs.
Watch the waste

 

Not everything can be recycled. Some household items, such as fluorescent light bulbs, everyday batteries or aerosol cans, require special disposal. Electronics, including computers, printers and phones also require special disposal. You can safely recycle these items at one of five waste facilities located in Wellington County near your Fergus apartment.

 

An easy opportunity to recycle

 

These centres also hold special event days to encourage residents to recycle these products properly. The next nearby event day will take place on September 12th at the Aberfoyle Roads Garage (7396 Wellington Road 34). Drop off your hazardous waste here between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The garage is about a ten-minute drive from the Executive Suites at 338 Gordon Street.

 

Give to those in need

 

Before you throw something out, even for recycling, ask yourself whether it might be useful to someone else. Gently used clothes, furniture, books and more can be taken to a secondhand store and resold at a lower cost to someone in need. In the City of Fergus, goods can be donated to the BMF Fergus (525 Maple Street). This not-for-profit thrift store sends proceeds to support the Bible League of Canada. The store is a five-minute drive or a ten-minute bike ride from Aberdeen Apartments (91 Westminster Crescent).

 

The blog team at Williams and McDaniel hopes today’s post provides some extra motivation to start or continue recycling whenever possible. For more information about their Fergus apartments, visit their website today.

Best Ways to Beat the Summer Heat

beat the heat in fergus

Sometimes the summer heat can be too much to handle and it is great to have options that can help you escape. Swimming, tubing and water sports are just some ways to keep the heat at bay. Our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, offers Fergus apartments that are within reach of some of the best ways to beat the summer’s sweltering weather conditions.

 

Elora Gorge

 

Enjoy some kayaking, hiking and inner tubing down the Grand River Valley. The Elora Gorge offers up a unique way to experience one of the most beautiful and scenic natural wonders in the area. Up above the rapids, 22-metre-high cliffs surround and shelter the rushing water. Tubing is only permitted when the river levels are at a safe and consistent flow, so check the Grand River Conservation Authority’s News bulletins before heading out. The normal hours of operation are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tubes, helmets and life jackets are available at the park, for more information on equipment fees click here.  In order to ensure that you have the mandatory equipment and experience the rapids, it is suggested that you arrive early since reservations are not permitted. The Grandview apartments are located 12 minutes away by car and the Executive Suites are 15 minutes away making them a close and cool option to choose.

 

Aquatics Centre

 

For those who prefer an option that is within walking distance of the apartments, Centre Wellington’s Aquatic Centre is a 14-minute walk away from the Grandview Apartments and 34 minutes away from the Executive Suites. Featuring a 25-metre lap pool with six swimming lanes and equipped facilities for adults, the centre also features a water slide, water jet sprays and a water umbrella for the kids. While the kids splash and swim around, there is a whirlpool available for adults to use, relax and recharge.  The Aquatic Centre located at 550 Belsyde Avenue and available to rent for birthday parties, school outings and corporate functions by calling the aquatic supervisor at (519) 843-2800.

 

Bingemans

 

Bingemans at 425 Bingemans Centre Drive in Kitchener is one of Waterloo Region’s premier attractions to enjoy a water-filled day of fun.  Boomerango, Full Throttle, The Cyclone and the Wave Pool are just a few of the water attractions that this high-energy park has to offer. The park also offers outdoor activities like canoeing the Grand River, beach volleyball, paintball and mini golf. While the water park is less than a 40-minute drive from the Fergus apartments, you can turn a day trip into a camping experience with Bingemans Camping Resort. There are a variety of camping packages available that include accommodations in two queen-size beds, stunning chandelier lighting, a fridge and a breathtaking view of the Grand River.

 

Summer weather can be spectacular but sometimes escaping the heat is a top priority. Luckily, Williams and McDaniel’s Fergus apartments are situated near some great options for easing the heat of summer, if only for a little while.
