Timmins’ citywide Spring Cleanup Program is back. This year’s confirmed dates are Tuesday, May 24 to Friday, June 3.

The full collection schedule for 2022 has been posted our website under "Spring Cleanup". Residents are to have their materials at the curb no more than two days prior to their scheduled collection day.

The volume of material to be collected per residence is limited to no more than half a standard half ton pick-up truck or approximately 60 cubic feet (4 feet wide, by 8 feet long and 2 feet high).

The following items will not be collected:
- Any material in a black garbage bag: material must be in clear bags only
- Concrete and asphalt: dispose at Deloro Landfill
- Batteries of any type: dispose during Hazardous Waste Day, June 11, 2022 in the Archie Dillon Sportsplex parking lot, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
- Tires: Many retailers and garages will take back your old tires free of charge and recycle into innovative recycled rubber products. For details and drop off locations, visit www.rpra.ca/programs/tires/collectionsites
- Electronics: dispose at Deloro Landfill and/or Hazardous Waste Day
- Propane tanks: dispose during Hazardous Waste Day
- White goods or items that contain Freon: dispose through private recycling firms
- Recyclables: dispose at Deloro Landfill, Tisdale Transfer Site and German Township Landfill or through regular curbside pickup
- Paints/liquids/fuels/chemicals: dispose during Hazardous Waste Day
- Textiles: dispose during Hazardous Waste Day
- Mattresses or box springs that are securely wrapped in plastic: dispose at Deloro Landfill

Leaves and yard waste are acceptable in compostable bags. Clean wood is acceptable in a separate pile from the rest of the Spring Clean Up material.

Material not in compliance with the guidelines will not be collected. Residents will be required to remove any material not collected from the street within 48 hours. Any containers (such as cans and recycling boxes) left with the waste will be collected; therefore, do not put out containers with the Spring Cleanup pile unless you want to get rid of the container.

For more information, visit our website, contact Service Timmins or download the Timmins Recyclepedia app online at Timmins.ca.

Timmins, ON – While I was disheartened to learn of our MPP Gilles Bisson’s recent by-pass surgery, I am happy that he is doing well and surrounded by family and loved ones. On behalf of Mayor, Council and the City of Timmins, I wish him a speedy recovery.

The City of Timmins Community Home Support Program, funded through the North East Local Health Integration Network (NE LHIN), has transitioned to the Home & Community Care Support Services effective April 1st through a NE LHIN voluntary integration initiative.

The Adult Day Program is an integral program for clients living with dementia in the community, and has been housed in the Golden Manor for over 30 years. Full time staff Josee Carriere has been working in the Program for 23 years and Supervisor Sue Walton has been with the Program for 11 years.

They were committed to reopening the program during the pandemic and through collaboration with the Porcupine Health Unit, renovations were done and furnishings updated to new infection prevention and control standards. This allowed us to safely bring clients back into the program while the plan to transition the program to the Alzheimer’s Society was executed.

With so many great memories with clients, families and volunteers we are happy to see they will be in great hands. We thank everyone who has made these programs a success and wish all of our clients nothing but the best! The contact phone numbers for the new agencies are as follows:

Adult Day Program
Alzheimer Society
705 268-4554

Home Maintenance
Access Better Living
705 268-2240

Transportation
Canadian Red Cross

City Council has awarded a three-year contract for reconstruction of Algonquin Blvd. West to R.M. Belanger Ltd. The planned Connecting Link Project will prioritize three sections of Algonquin Blvd. West that pass through Downtown Timmins extending from Theriault Blvd. to Brunette Rd.

Projected costs for all three segments total $27,980,596.00 + HST. The City currently has an allocated budget for the 2022 portion of the project and has identified potential funding streams and a substantial Federal Gas Tax Reserve that is available to offset project costs and maintain this year’s current capital budget.

“By signing a three-year contract, the City is able to benefit from cost savings by confirming future work,” says Pat Seguin, Director of Growth and Infrastructure. “Within the budget are contingency funds, which will allow for variances. If the cost of asphalt or fuel rises, we have allowed for that within the project costs. Moving forward, we will budget accordingly to match tender values in the subsequent two years of the project.”

The next three phases of the Connecting Link Project will include full-depth reconstruction of the roadway, replacement of underground services like water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer, pole relocation, curb and sidewalk reconstruction, and new asphalt and light standards. The work is extensive and also includes removal of the ONR overpass bridge, which will mitigate flooding and level the roadway. A new snowmobile crossing will also be installed near Hollinger Park.

A plan for traffic management will be announced prior to construction launch. Residents can sign up to receive Connecting Link updates via email online at Timmins.ca under News and Alerts.

Spring swimming lessons registration for the Archie Dillon Sportsplex Pool are currently on hold due to on-going issues with our third-party online registration service.

Online registration has been outsourced to an external provider who appears to be experiencing challenges with routing and balancing the load of customer traffic. The City’s challenge to provide registration has been further frustrated by the vendor’s service availability.

City staff are working to find an alternative solution. If you did not receive confirmation of your registration from the online portal, you are not currently registered for classes. If you made a payment without receiving formal confirmation, your payment is pending and the transaction will be released by noon today (April 7). All registrations for Tuesday classes that were confirmed will be honoured.

Registration for all remaining classes and dates will continue in a staggered format. A formal announcement with the next registration date, time and method will be made by end of day Friday, April 8 via the City’s website, Archie Dillon Sportsplex Pool Facebook page, and City social media sites.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience.
