Clay Owl Boutique and Studio

May 27, 2022

Clay Owl Boutique and Studio was purchased by Gateway in the spring of 2019 as our first Social Enterprise. We also recently moved to a new location at 586 Main Street, in Winkler. Clay Owl’s
primary purpose is to provide training opportunities for the participants that are supported through the job development program. Skills are built through the job interview process, discussing shifts and schedules, requesting time off, filling out timecards, customer service skills and any other on-site skills related to working at Clay Owl. This is all accomplished alongside the support of a fulltime job coach employed at Clay Owl. The participants also earn minimum wage and take with them skills that are transferable to future employment opportunities within the community.

Recycling Depot/Shredding Services

February 17, 2022

Our Recycling Depot has opened again; however, at reduced hours and capacity – Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., for  household recycling only. We cannot accept commercial cardboard/recycling at this time due to ongoing delays with repairs to our large baler and processing line. We are hoping to be able to accept commercial recycling by Fall/Winter-2022.

We are also once again providing confidential shredding services of documents for businesses/general public at a cost of $0.27/kg., with a minimum charge of $2.00. Staples and paper clips do not need to be removed from documents to be shredded.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
