Lane Usage During Spring Thaw

The City of Martensville encourages residents, for which their lane is a secondary means of access to their property, to limit their usage during the spring thaw period. Heavy or repetitive vehicle usage during spring thaw and wet conditions can cause further rutting and reduce drainage. This limits the ability of crews to conduct maintenance on the lanes in a timely manner and increases the amount of materials and time required to reshape lanes.

For questions or further information please contact Pubic Works at 931-2166.

Let’s Clean-up After Our Pets!

Pet owners are reminded that it is an offense to not pick-up and properly dispose of defecation from your pet when using public pathways and parks. Refuse bags and garbage cans have been placed along pathways and parks for your convenience.
Failure to pick up after your pet can result in fines up to $300.

More information about the Animal Control Bylaw can be found on Martensville.ca.

Recycling/ Blue Bin Program Update

Plastic film will be removed as an acceptable material in residential recycling bins effective immediately. Plastic film includes grocery bags, sandwich bags, cling wrap and similar items that can be ‘stretched’. These items are also usually marked HDPE (2) or LDPE (4).

Please consider using reusable shopping bags to help our landfills and environment.

Visit Loraas.ca for additional information on this change of acceptable materials for the Recycle Program.
