During this holiday season there will be some disruption to the garbage collection service. Please note that Monday and Tuesday, December 25 & 26, there will be no garbage collection service. Regular service will commence on Wednesday, December 27. Residents that normally have their garbage collected on Tuesday, December 26th will be collected on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018. Please have your containers out by 7:00 a.m. with wheels furthest away from the curb.
For customers that are affected by the holiday schedule, we will be placing roll off bins at selected sites to provide an alternative to dispose of your waste. Please ensure that your waste is bagged and tied to reduce litter. The bins will be available from December 22, 2017 until January 2nd, 2018. These bins are for waste only, not recycling products!
Residents living in the Valley and East Hardisty, two roll off bins will be placed at Jeles (Hardisty & Drinnan Way). Residents living in Thompson Lake, may access a roll off bin on McArdell Drive off of Highway 16. Residents living in the Eaton and Muldoon area may use the roll off bins located at the Recycling Depot located on Rowan Street.
The gates will be open for the recycling depot on Rowan Street from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday on Sunday during the holiday season. Please remember to recycle all wrapping paper in the mixed paper bins, and cardboard and box board to be flattened and placed in the cardboard bins. This will reduce the amount of garbage placed in your own bins.
Customers may choose to bring their waste directly to the West Yellowhead Regional Landfill as well. Please note that the Landfill hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and closed Sundays and Holidays. The Landfill will be open on Wednesday, December 27th.
The Town of Hinton would like to thank you for your anticipated cooperation and wishes everybody a safe and happy holiday. Please note extreme weather may have an impact on garbage collection.
