In order to eliminate the amount of debris and trash that is dumped in back lanes of our city, at the City yard waste depot, and in business/contractor dumpsters, the City of Martensville has been providing a ‘Lane and General Clean-up’ program which is run every fall.
With the help of Urban Camp and the Public Works Department, they will be out picking up items listed on the dates below:
Residents that live North of Main Street will have their items picked up the week of September 20th through 24th. All items will need to be out by September 20th at 8:00 AM.
Residents that live South of Main Street will have their items picked up the week of September 27th through October 1st. All items will need to be out by September 27th 8:00 AM.
All residents with back lanes can place their items one week prior to pick-up. All residents without back lanes cannot place any items curbside until the day before pickup. The City of Martensville asks that the items placed in the lanes and curbside are not restrictive to traffic.
Please note that this program is not intended for commercial and industrial business waste; only residential household yard cleanup waste, and it is the responsibility of residents to ensure that their waste is disposed of properly. To avoid prosecution under the Waste Bylaw, any waste that is not picked up or not meeting the criteria for pickup must be disposed of properly through an approved disposal means.
For more information on available services for disposal of special items as well as a list of places to recycle some of items that will not be picked up, go to the City website at www.martensville.ca under Services For Residents/Waste & Recycling.
