Where can I find information on recycling?
Municipalities are responsible for recycling. What can or cannot be recycled differs from community to community. For an accurate list for your area, contact your local municipality.
Are you looking to find out what the recycling symbol (three arrows forming a triangle) stands for and what the numbers inside the triangle represent? The answer can be found in EnviroZine, Environment Canada's online newsmagazine.
Where can I find information on historic weather data?
This type of climatological data does not constitute one of Environment Canada's basic services. This information is therefore only made available to users who request it if we can recover the costs of doing so.
Some detailed information is made available online through the National Climate Data and Information Archive. Visit either "Climate Data Online" or "Climate Normals and Averages" to look for the data you require.
For more information, contact the regional office serving your area. Where available, the user-pay Climate Source service, accessible at 1-900-565-1111, gives you quick, direct access to this office.
Where can I find information on sunrise and sunset times?
At the top-right hand side of the Home page, click on the Weather link. Select the province and city for which you want information. Under the "Currently" section, you will find sunrise, sunset, moonrise, and moonset times for today.
For other astronomical information, visit Frequently Asked Questions on Environment Canada's Weather page.
