Municipal Clean-Up

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 2020 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.

BOULEVARD CLEANING

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.

No Dumping in the Frank Industrial Area

The lot next to Devlin’s Towing in the Frank Industrial Park is a NO DUMPING area.  It is illegal under Alberta’s Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act to dump on public or private property without consent.  Violators will be prosecuted.  

Please ensure disposal of waste and metal is done properly at the Crowsnest Pincher Creek Landfill
