Border City residents are being invited to get into spring clean up as the City brings back the Household Hazardous Waste Roundup on May 7th at the Lloydminster Exhibition Grounds. The hazardous waste drive had been put on hold over the COVID months.
The event will be part of the Mary Brown’s Pitch-In Week Community Cleanup from May 1st to 8th.
“It’s important we combine our efforts in keeping our community clean and help preserve our environment,” says Karen Dela Rosa, Senior Manager of Waste Services.
Next week Lloydminster locals and community groups are encouraged to sweep sidewalks, pick up litter, and complete other cleaning measures within their properties and community spaces.
“Together, we can invest in our community by properly disposing of waste, recycling and keeping our neighbourhoods clean,” says Mayor Gerald Aalbers.
On Saturday, May 7th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Household Hazardous Waste Roundup will allow residents to properly dispose of household quantities of the following items: TVs, monitors, printers, laptops/notebooks, used oils, paint and paint cans, fertilizers, toxic products, pesticides/weed killers, cleaning products/solvents, medications, used oil filters, antifreeze, automotive/truck/SUV tires, drugs and pills, sharps and needles, propane tanks, aerosol cans, batteries (wet and dry), cellphones and various household electronics.
Toilets, baby walkers, cribs and car seats, will not be accepted, says the City.
Residents can arrange for free household hazardous waste pickup by calling 780-872-1136 before 6 p.m. on Friday, May 6th. All arranged items must be properly contained, especially hazardous materials, and available for curbside pickup on Saturday, May 7th.
