Let’s Keep our Lanes Clean, Fall Back Lane Clean-up

Placing garbage, materials or waste in our lanes is unsightly, can attract pests, be unsafe and impede maintenance or access to properties.

Property owners along a boulevard or lane are responsible for ensuring these areas are cleaned up. Key points under the Nuisance Abatement Bylaw include:

  • The owner or occupier of property along a boulevard or lane shall ensure that the portion of the boulevard or lane next to the property, up to the centre line of the lane, is kept free and clear, at all times of weeds, uncontrolled growth of grass, plants and tree/shrub overgrowth.
  • Dumping or placing any garden, vegetation, waste materials or tree branches along the boulevard or lane is against the municipal bylaw and subject to enforcement
  • Use of lanes or boulevards for the dumping of household furniture, building materials or tires is not permitted.

Questions about Boulevard or Lane Maintenance can be referred to City Hall or consult the Nuisance Abatement Bylaw at Martensville.ca

The City of Martensville conducts an annual back lane and general clean-up once a year with this year’s dates being:

September 12th -16th for the Southside
September 19th -23rd for the Northside.

Items may be placed for pick-up one week before scheduled pick-up. In the interim please utilize the Loraas Landfill. Waste placed in lanes before this time is regulated under the Nuisance Abatement Bylaw and is subject to enforcement.

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day will be August 13th at the Sports Centre. Bring in your oils, paints, batteries and all items that pose a risk of contamination in the environment. For a list of accepted items visit Martensville.ca.
