As is the case with nearly everyone, you’ve probably made yourself a list of goals that you hope to tackle over the new year. Here’s one that you probably didn’t think of but that could end up being useful — becoming a more informed resident.
It’s a pretty easy process — all you have to do is visit www.cornwall.ca. There, you will a wealth of information about the many services that are offered to Cornwall residents.

This includes not only their location, but also what kind of facilities they house — this could be outdoor rinks, playgrounds, ball diamonds and even splash pads, among other things.
There, you can also find several different maps of Cornwall. These range from the Cornwall landfill, zoning, future construction projects and even the water and sewer network. Yet it doesn’t even stop there. You can also peek at what Cornwall used to look like from the sky back in 1929!

Why stop there? Learn all about waste collection too! Did you know that there are garbage collection rules? For example, garbage cans must have two handles and must not be bigger than 136 litres or 32 gallons.
