Collection Schedule: Urban Areas: May 13 to May 17, 2013
Rural Areas: May 16, 2013
Collected litter can be disposed of via the regular weekly curbside collection provided by the Public Works Department. Arrangements to pick up larger items can be made by notifying the Public Services Department at 807-854-1100, or any Ward Office, in advance of Spring Clean-Up Week.
Accepted Items (call 854-1100 ext. 2029 to make an appointment for pick up)
All furnishings, mattresses, box springs, carpeting, large appliances (refrigerators*, freezers*, air conditioners*, stoves, washers, dryers, dishwasher, domestic hot water heaters), bicycles, swing sets, lawnmowers, snow blowers, lawn furniture, BBQ’s, and electronics. Yard waste is to be bagged. Wooden boxes, crates, branches and yard trimmings shall be securely tied in bundles not exceeding 3 feet, 6 inches or 24 inches in diameter and not weighing more than 50 pounds.
Public Works will collect refrigeration appliances provided there is a tag confirming that the Freon has been removed or a tag is purchased at any Municipal Ward Office and placed on the appliance.
*Refrigeration appliances which contain Freon are required by the Provincial law to be checked by a certified technician and verified as having had the Freon removed prior to disposal. This is to prevent the escape of CFC’s into the environment.
