Annual Spring Clean & Garbage Collection

The Expanded Curb Side Collection which is facilitated by the Municipality during the Annual Spring Clean Up Week will be delayed until further notice.  The collection of many large items during this annual service does not allow for Social Distancing to be adhered to. The event will be advertised in advance in order to allow residents time to gather items for the collection.  Please note that all Municipal Landfills remain open for regular scheduled business hours.

The Municipality seasonally operates Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Depots during the summer months at the Geraldton and Longlac landfill sites. The depots are scheduled to be accessible during regular landfill operating hours between July 4 and September 5, 2020.  All HHW brought in for disposal must have legible product labels intact.
