It's time for the annual Spring Clean-up.

The crews start in East Coulee May 1.

"We're doing the same campaign that we've always done," explained Tammy Nygaard, operations manager at the Drumheller Regional Landfill. "Acceptable items would be propane tanks, lead car batteries, tires, white metals, old paint, old computers and televisions. If you have a freon appliance, which would be a refrigerator, deep freeze or air conditioner, you must pay a fee at Town Hall."

A $15 fee must be paid at Town Hall for freon appliances a minimum of two days prior to your collection date. Stickers will be given to residents to  place on their appliances so that the crew is aware the freon appliance has been paid for.

"We've only got a set amount of time to do this, every section of town is done on a specific day and so the guys have to get out there at 7:00 a.m," added Nygaard. " They have to get that section of town done in that day because we've only got nine days to do this project so we don't go back. If everybody could please cooperate, we would greatly appreciate it."

The landfill has an amnesty period for household goods that is on now until May 12.

"You're allowed to bring all household materials to the landfill for free like furniture, mattresses or anything that the town crews would pick up during that amnesty period," said Nygaard. "If there is demolition materials, like a half ton truck full, there is a charge."

Nygaard added that leaves need to be bagged and tree branches need to be cut down to 4ft.
