RESIDENTIAL WASTE COLLECTION SERVICE HAS CHANGED
Curbside RESIDENTIAL WASTE collection will be provided by Loraas Disposal.
Please review the schedule that is delivered with your new garbage bin. East Side is Route B and West Side is Route A
ONLY the waste in the bin WILL BE picked up.
Garbage Collection will be every two weeks, alternating with the collection of your recycling.
The pick-up day will be on Wednesdays alternating for garbage and recycling
Ignore the arrows on the new bins as they may be incorrect, please place you bin as described in the brochure from Loraas.
Residents will NOT receive an additional charge for this residential curbside waste collection pick up. Commercial Waste Collection is still under review.
Please note that the Town’s garbage truck is near the end of its useful life. Repairs over the past few years have been steadily increasing. The large capital purchase price for a replacement truck weighed heavily in Council’s decision to contract this service to an outside provider. It is important to note that this decision will NOT result in job loss to Town employees. While staff will not be performing residential waste collection services, the focus of the additional employee capacity will be to improve maintenance services for road, sidewalk, water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer and other areas of the Town’s infrastructure that require attention.
