Recycling Collection Hours

Recycling 

The Commission would like to encourage everyone to recycle glass, plastics, metal cans and paper by using the recycle containers in Foremost or nearby centres. We would request that all individuals:

  • Report to the Waste Transfer Site Operator before disposing garbage.
  • Arrive earlier to allow sufficient time to unload before closing time.

Freon removal service is available at Tirecraft in Foremost. Freon removal certification (sticker) is required before acceptance at the designated sites.

CARDBOARD COLLECTION

The Cardboard Trailer will be located at Skiff, Etzikom and Orion on a monthly basis as indicated in the chart below.

Please note only clean, flattened, corrugated cardboard is accepted at all sites monthly. CHEMICAL BOXES must also be flattened and will, then, be treated as regular garbage.

The following charts will indicate where and when various types of garbage will be accepted. All sites will be closed except for the times posted. *** The sites are closed on Statutory Holidays.

Mulching 

Mulching is becoming increasingly popular, a mulch blade mower chops the clippings into a fine mulch which is returning to the lawn. As the clippings decompose rapidly, the lawn has a cleaner appearance. Nitrogen and other essential nutrients are returned into the grass roots resulting in a thicker and greener lawn without fertilizing.

The Village of Foremost requests that the public consider mulching their grass rather than bagging it for transfer to refuse site.This would save on garbage volumes in both hauling and landfill space.

Composting

The Village of Foremost has set aside an area for the composting of leaves and grass. It is located at the Industrial Park, North of the County of Forty Mile shop, adjacent to the large dirt piles.

Please follow the system when utilizing the composting area:

  • Only Leaves and grass clippings
  • Plastic bags are to be dumped and is discarding, put in barrel next to composting area.
  • No garbage, household or otherwise
  • No shrubs or tree branches
  • No metal
  • Biodegradable bags are permissible

Your cooperation in maintaining this composting site is appreciated!
