Garbage Collection Guide Error

There was a misprint in the Collection Guides delivered to each Town household. Previously, the Collection Guide stated:

"Bundle plastic bags into one clear bag and place loose papers inside a cardboard box in order to reduce litter and to protect the machinery at the sorting facility."

This line should not have been included in the Collection Guide and should be ignored entirely. Plastic Bags should only be placed in the black garbage carts, and loose paper is fine to be placed into the blue recycling carts as is.

 

***Town of Three Hills Garbage Collection Notice
 
– November 24, 2021***

New Garbage and Recycling Bins are being delivered starting today!

Bins are being delivered to all residents over the next week, and as soon as you receive your bins, begin using them for your garbage and recycling pick up immediately.
