Bookmark and Share

Because of a significant increase in special collection costs, the Municipality has elected to offer two special collections next year rather than four. The savings is $24,000. As in other municipalities, we will have special collection in the spring (April) and fall (October). January's is not traditionally well used, and generally resulted in garbage frozen into the ground until spring. Kaizer Meadow Environmental Management Centre accepts all waste items from residents of the Municipality at any time of year for free up to a weight of 1,500 lbs. Check the 2015 Waste Collection Calendar for dates.
