Waste & Recycling - A Guide to using your new Carts
How to use your new Waste and Recycling Carts - CLICK HERE for the information that was delivered with each cart to residents of Blackfalds. Carts need to be placed according to the instructions to ensure pick-up. If you require further information or are experiencing difficulty with the new system, please contact the Town Office at 403-885-4677.
Waste, Recycling & Yard Waste
Now that the new cart program has been implemented there will be an increased focus on adherence to the program guidelines. To assist residents, the waste and recycling collectors will be tagging carts and other waste receptacles with a green sticker that will indicate for the resident if the cart or container is not complying with the Town's Waste, Recycling, & Yard Waste Program. The sticker will also advise the resident of any issues that need to be corrected.
Waste receptacles may be tagged for a number of reasons: they may contain non-acceptable materials, they may be containers that do not comply with program guidelines, they may exceed weight restrictions, or they may be facing the wrong direction or be too close to nearby objects, etc. Once the resident has complied with the waste and recycling guidelines, the collectors will empty the carts and containers that were tagged on the next regular pick-up day. FOR MORE INFORMATION, please contact the Town Office at 403-885-4677.
