The municipality is reminding residents of their options for disposing of residential waste from standing homes, as the recovery process continues.
The “white goods” pick up program coordinated by the Insurance Bureau of Canada concluded on June 30, 2015. If you still have a damaged fridge, freezer or other large appliance and you are insured, you should speak with your insurer before disposing it. If you are uninsured, it is your responsibility to take the appliance to the local landfill.
Residents are asked not to leave units at the curbside, as they will not be picked up.
As part of the recovery effort, the municipal landfill has extended its hours to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Tipping fees will be waived until July 31 for all waste brought to the landfill by personal vehicles. This includes bagged waste or large items (i.e. furniture, white goods, small appliances, etc.).
Residents should report any littering or illegal dumping to the Municipal Law Enforcement Complaints Line by calling 780-788-4200. Residents are encouraged to report any infraction they witness to aid in maintaining the local environment and community appearance.
