Wheels facing wrong Too far back from road Easy pick up from road
WAS YOUR GARBAGE CART NOT PICKED UP?!
Common reasons why your garbage was NOT PICKED UP include:
- Receptacle was placed too far back for truck to reach it
- Wheels were facing the street instead of the property
- Lid was not closed – overflowing with trash
- Receptacle was placed too close to a parked vehicle or other object
- Receptacle put out too late
Carts must be placed on the street by the curbside at the end of your driveway by 7:00 a.m. on pick up day. The truck is only able to reach so far and when the driver drives on the shoulder of the road, it creates issues for us and the homeowner including rutting that leads to drainage issues. Also, WHEELS MUST BE CURBSIDE – on the side closest to your house, not to the street.
See WASTE MANAGEMENT BYLAW 233-21. If you have any questions, please call the Village office at 780 765 3652 for further clarification.
RECYCLING PICK UP
Recycling pick-up is scheduled for every other Monday in Rycroft. Please check the Central Peace Signal Newspaper or the events calendar for dates. All bags should be out by 7:00 a.m and placed approx. 6 feet from your garbage cart. If the driver does not see your bag, it will not be picked up.
Be aware of what you are hoping to recycle. The picture below helps with what is allowed and what isn’t. If the driver sees any contaminated items in the bag, the whole bag will be left and must be put in the garbage.
