Starting on Monday, May 11th Heavy garbage will begin and the last day will be Monday, May 25th. Please have your garbage on the side of the road by 8:00 am and the last pick up will be 3:30 pm each day. There will be no more heavy garbage picked up after 3:30 pm on Monday, May 25, after May 25 it will be up to the homeowner to take the items left on the side of the road to the municipal dump.
Please have the heavy garbage separated into: Wood, metal, plastic etc. If you have fridges or freezers, please make sure the appliances are empty; they will not dispose of any appliances that have any garbage in it; it will be the responsibility of the homeowner. If possible, homeowners are asked to bring their own appliances to the dump, as Haisla Nation Council gets charged $25 per appliance, because we have to hire a company to come and empty the Freon; if we bring an appliance to the dump still we Freon in it, we get a heavy fine! If the homeowner takes it to the dump themselves they don’t have to empty the Freon.
If you have any vehicles you would like disposed of please call Andy Bolton at 250-639-9361 ext. 210 or his cell 250-6393741. There will be no charge to dispose of the vehicles from May 13 – 27, please ensure that there is no fluid in the vehicles (no oil, antifreeze, windshield wash). After May 27, there will be a charge of $50 per vehicle to remove.
