At the Policies and Priorities meeting this week, Whitecourt Town Council discussed options presented regarding the Residential Spring Cleanup Campaign.
At a council meeting in September, Council heard of some issues that were seen in this year’s campaign, such as large amounts of waste being taken to the landfill.
With the goal of making the program more cost-effective and efficient going forward, Council chose to continue the program as well as add a new component.
Mayor Maryann Chichak explains the new component.
As well as the Take It or Leave It addition, Council noted they would like to increase education about what items are and are not accepted for pickup during the campaign.
