Three Hills Notices - October 18, 2017

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

TEMPORARY RESIDENTIAL

GARBAGE COLLECTION – FRONT PICKUP

Effective November 1st, 2017

Starting Wednesday November 1st, 2017 all regularly scheduled Wednesday and Thursday residential garbage collection will be from the STREET and not the alley or lane until such time that the alleys become stabilized after spring run-off. This decision to temporarily move garbage collection to the street is due to the size of our garbage truck, which is compounded in the winter with less room to maneuver slippery corners in the alley’s or lanes, and to protect our Public Works Department from injuries.

Town Administration and Council appreciate your assistance during this time. To keep Three Hills the beautiful place it is to live, please ensure that all household garbage is securely bagged and tied, and the weight of any bag or waste receptacle (and its contents) does not exceed 22 kilograms (50 pounds). The waste receptacle for collection on the street should be placed in such a manner that it will not overturn. Each residential property is allowed 3 bags per week. Waste that exceeds 3 bags will not be collected unless the bag(s) has the appropriate prepaid tag attached. Tags are available at the Town Office. Garbage must be out for pickup by 7:00 am on the scheduled date of collection.

Further information can be obtained by calling the Town Office at 403-443-5822 during the hours of 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
