The annual Town of Drumheller Spring Clean-up is done for another year and it looks to have been quite successful.
"Things were pretty status quo: some areas were up a little bit, some areas were down a little bit," reported Tammy Nygaard, Operations Manager at the Drumheller Regional Landfill. "It seems like everybody got new TV's this year: TV's were really up and propane tanks were up, but other than that it's pretty consistent."
"I think people are finally getting it; I'm hoping people are finally getting it," she added. "They really listened as far as the tree branches went because that's really been an issue in the past: it takes so long to pick up those trees if they're not cut down into four foot lengths."
Nygaard doesn't have final figures from this year's Spring Cleanup as yet, in part because an amnesty to drop things off at the landfill for free continues through Friday, May 12. However, she thinks it can be be called a big success.
"The guys were pleased; all the piles were very well organised, things weren't spread out all over the place so they got through real quick," she explained. "They had no problems, no issues, the weather cooperated with us, it went very well this year."
