UTILITY BYLAW 15-2018 HAS BEEN UPDATED – GARBAGE BINS

The Town of Provost Utility Bylaw has been updated to include information regarding our new Garbage Totes. The new policy is to put the bins in the front of your home and now there is a section about taking them away. The bins must be removed within 48 hrs of the garbage pickup and placed onto your property. Do not leave them on the road.

Also each year we receive complaints regarding stray cats, skunks, magpies and crows. Most of these complaints found that garbage had been left on the ground and not in a proper receptacles or bins and therefore the animals successfully ripped open the garbage. This will cause the pests to return to these places for more food. Each resident have been provided with their own garbage bin and they are capable of handling residential garbage. As a matter of fact they are larger than the previous ones. Please do not leave your garbage unless it is inside a proper bin or receptacle.

Sec. 4.3 of the Utility Bylaw 15/2018 States : Householders shall place garbage in plastic bags or garbage cans and in a garbage enclosure that will prevent the breakage of same or scavenging of animals. Failing to do so could result in a fine of $250 and any subsequent offence $500.

NEW EMAIL ADDRESS FOR COUNCIL

If you would like to send our Mayor and or Council members an email you can do so by going to the Council icon at the top of the webpage, scroll down to Citizen Requests and Inquiries. The email must be Town related and not personal, we will not accept RUDE emails from anyone. This is a respectful place to send something to your Council. Maybe a great idea or suggestion. This is not a “RANT & RAVE” site either. All emails will be addressed to Council. We appreciate your comments.
