Spring Clean-up Postponed Until Later This Year - May, 18, 2023 
City Council has provided direction on the City’s annual residential Spring Clean-up Program. Tipping fees at the Deloro Landfill Site will be waived between Monday, May 29 and Friday, June 9, 2023 and the “Spring” Clean-up program will be postponed until a later date. Public Works has been asked to carry out the clean-up and is expected to present an implementation plan to City Council.

The City’s annual program allows residents to set out bulky waste curbside over a specified period in late May or early June. The City will now waive residential tipping fees at the Deloro Landfill site over a similar time period starting May 29, but Council was clear that the program is a core service and canceling it isn’t an option.

“The City did receive two outside tenders to complete work,” says Ken Krcel, Director of Public Works and Environmental Services. “The tender received, that followed the scope of work required, was 609% higher than last year’s contract. Public Works will now be responsible for delivering the program and will provide Council with a plan on when this will be done and how it will work in conjunction with regular waste and recycling collection.”

Residents who have already placed bulk waste curbside are asked to remove it. No waste is to be placed curbside without confirmation of the program and applicable collection dates.

“Moving the clean-up to later in the year is actually a benefit to City road maintenance operations,” adds Krcel. “This will allow us to work on street sweeping and line painting without the additional hazard of bulky curbside waste.”
