Let’s go green together!

Recycle Your Disposable Masks
CPL and ecoCaledon have partnered to offer an easy way to recycle disposable COVID masks; avoiding landfill sites and reducing the impact on the environment.
Caledon Public Library also reduces its carbon imprint by supporting The Friends of Caledon Public Library Book Sale.

Caledon Public Library enthusiastically endorses and supports local recycling group – ecoCaledon.

ecoCaledon (formerly Citizens for a Clean Caledon) is an environmental action group of volunteers established by the Town of Caledon in 1995. ecoCaledon proudly promotes programs designed to enhance and protect Caledon’s environment. Such programs include battery recycling, rain barrels, education, Green Directory, Healthy Lawns Healthy People and Clean Air Clean Energy. Caledon Public Library partnered with ecoCaledon by designing and painting a rain barrel to promote water conservation. Caledon’s Second Annual Rain Barrel Artist’s Collection is co-sponsored by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. Caledon Public Library will again celebrate its conservation efforts by displaying a painted barrel at the Albion Bolton Branch.
