Bottle Shed


Just a quick reminder to residents -- the bottles and recyclables that go into the bottle shed are for the benefit of the entire community.  Our fireworks display cannot take place without these generous donations.  All funds raised will be used in purchasing our fireworks for our fireworks show that is put on every five years. 


Please note that the items that are accepted at the Town recycling area are:  CLEAR glass; CLEAN tin cans; Clean paper; Clean cardboard, (**please flatten cardboard boxes before putting in bin due to container size**); CLEAN plastics; e-waste (bin located by paper/plastic recycling bins).  For further information on what is acceptable, please contact the Town Office.  Large items can be held by the resident and the Town will take them during its Spring and Autumn Clean Up.  Large items should NOT be left at the Recycling area during regular weekly clean up.  Such items are stoves, cupboards, fridges, water coolers, etc.  These items are accepted at the Landfill, costs hours and days open are also available at the Town Office.

Spring is just around the corner (hopefully) and we want to help make it easier for you to get rid of unnecessary household items and help make Stavely a clean, beautiful, clutter free town.  Starting April 17 (late this year due to SNOW) and every Tuesday after until May 15, Public works will pick up general and construction waste in addition to regular garbage -- items for this pick up may be set out on Mondays.  PLEASE NOTE - every effort will be made to have non-household garbage items picked up on the Tuesday but items may not be picked up until later in the week.


ACCEPTABLE ITEMS


Furniture -- couches, dressers, desks, chairs, tables

Appliances -- dryers, washer toaster, refrigerators, freezers, a/c units (a fee will apply to any appliance containing FREON)

Metals

"Other" -- or construction waste (should be no more than 75 lbs and no longer than 6' to accommodate the Town garbage truck)


NON-ACCEPTABLE ITEMS


Organic waste, toxic waster and electronics


Electronics are still accepted and can be placed in the bin located next to the recycling bin trailer.  Tree branches and compostable material should be taken to the area east of Town near the lagoon.  For toxic waste be sure to utilize the annual toxic waste roundup -- watch for dates in the local newspaper.


Please ensure all items for pick up are separated and are in neat piles next to your regular garbage.  Thank you in advance to all those who choose to participate and help to keep Stavely beautiful and clutter free.  NOTE:  if you are not sure in an item is approved to be picked up or if you have other general questions please contact the Town Office at 403-549-3761 or the Town Shop at 403-549-3944.
