September Back Lane and General Clean-up…Are you Prepared?
Residents that live South of Main Street will need to have their items out by:
September 24th – 8:00 AM.
Residents that live North of Main Street will need to have their items out by:
October 1st – 8:00 AM.
Please note that the City will be making one pass only. All residents with back lanes shall not place any items out in the lane until one week prior to pick-up
Public Works Department with the help of Urban Camp will be out during specified dates to pick up items that are listed below. It is our hope that by offering this service it will eliminate the amount of trash and debris that is dumped in back lanes, at the City yard waste depot, and business/contractor dumpsters.
This program is intended for residential household yard cleanup waste, and not intended for commercial and industrial business waste. It is the responsibility of residents to ensure that their waste is disposed of properly. Any waste not picked up or not meeting the criteria for pickup must be disposed of properly through an approved disposal means to avoid prosecution under the Waste Bylaw.
For more information about the Program, please contact City Hall or visit Martensville.ca

Water Meter Read/Estimate Schedule Commencing in October
Between the months of October and May, the City puts in place an alternating schedule that includes meter reading for half of the City. The alternating schedule is in place during these months due to extra time required to complete city-wide, month to month meter reads. Changes to seasonal staffing, colder temperatures, inclement weather, higher priority maintenance issues in cooler seasons, are all contributing factors in encouraging residents to provide their own meter reading.
Why Should you provide your own meter reading?
• Your water bill will be based on actual consumption preventing you from being over billed or under billed
• Days of usage may be higher when an estimate is used resulting in higher billing. A water meter read will ensure accuracy.
• Estimates are based on prior usage, including summer months where water usage is typically higher. Actual water use in winter months will likely be lower resulting in a lower actual bill.
