The Municipality provides several services and programs to keep our community clean. We ask everyone to please dispose of their waste properly.
What Can I do to Help?
- Residents are encouraged to help out by simply picking up litter and debris in and around their own property. Litter or garbage on private property is the responsibility of the property owner.
- The Municipality provides year round solid waste collection for residents along with providing the Community Clean-up Program, Toxic Roundup, Large Item for Seniors, and the Community Yard Waste Site. The Crowsnest Pincher Creek Landfill accepts solid waste which the Municipality pays the tipping fees for residents if under 500kg.
Spring Street Sweeping
Street Sweeping for the 2019 season has commenced in the commercial areas of our communities.
As the Street Sweeping crews move into the residential areas and from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, signs will be posted in the area the day before street sweeping is expected to commence. Residents are asked to move their vehicles from the road when street sweeping is happening in your area. We also ask if you could kindly pass the word on to any neighbours who may not have received notification that the sweepers are in the area.
Please keep an eye out for street sweeping equipment, and use caution when travelling near them.
Please obey any "No Parking" signs.
Please be advised that boulevard cleaning will not be done by the Municipal crews as the equipment is too heavy to be on the boulevards and causes damage.
Please rake your boulevard prior to the scheduled sweeping.
For more information, please call the Operations Department at 403-563-2220.
Community Yard Waste Site
The Community Yard Waste Site, located at 1152 – 148 Street in the Frank Industrial Park, is now open for the season.
Grass clippings and tree branches can be dropped off in the yard waste site. Anything larger than 6” in diameter will not be accepted. All loads are subject to inspection.
Hours of operation:
Monday-Friday 7:30am - noon & 12:30pm - 2:30pm
Saturday & Sunday 11:00am - noon & 12:30pm - 2:30pm
If the access to the Frank Yard Waste Site is locked during the available hours, please visit the Frank Waste Water Treatment Office to pick up the key and return it to the office when you have finished. While there is generally someone in the Waste Water Treatment Office to provide access to the Yard Waste Site, there are times when workers are called out for emergencies or anomalies that need to be investigated. Residents are encouraged to phone ahead to ensure someone will be available, by calling 403-562-7124.
For more information please call our Operations Department at 403-563-2220.
