The Yard Waste Program is available again this year. This is a user pay program whereby you place your grass clippings and yard waste in an 80 litre bin purchased from the Town and we pick it up on Monday mornings. Yard waste is leaves, grass clippings, mulch, flowers and plants, unscreened compost (de-composted yard waste materials), non-invasive weeds, tree and brush pruning, sod and dirt attached to sod in small quantities. Yard waste does not include animal feces, cardboard, plastic, soil, rocks, fencing, fabric, netting and other non-vegetated landscaping and gardening waste. No material other than yard waste is permitted.
If you were on the program in the previous year and were billed monthly, you remain on the program unless you tell us otherwise. However, if you were on the program in the previous year and paid a one-time fee of $36.00 you must call the Town Office to renew this service.
For residents new to the program, please contact the Town Office to sign up for the program. You will be required to purchase from the Town of Rimbey an 80 litre bin (maximum of 2 bins) at a cost of $11.00 each plus GST.
The cost of the program is as follows: Annual Cost of $36.00 averaged over 12 months (January to December) is $3.00 per month on your utility bills, OR $36.00 payable in one lump sum payment. If you join the program part way through the year, the cost is still $36.00. This is not negotiable.
If the residence is a rental property, the homeowner must also sign the registration form as it may be an addition to their previously signed utility rental agreement.
Should you require further information, please call the Town of Rimbey Administration Office at 403-843-2113.
