Spring may be in the air, but garbage and unwanted waste are cluttered in many garages and basements.
It’s time for spring cleaning.
The community spring clean up on May 1 and 2 gives Rimbey residents a chance to clean up with ease.
Simply bag your unwanted items and leave them at the curbside of the end of your block for town crews to pick up. The crews will not be picking up large items and furniture, which need to be delivered directly to the transfer station. The station is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Bentley will have their spring clean up May 26.
Also on May 1 a household waste roundup to remove e-waste such as TVs, computers, laptops and other electronics as well as hazardous waste will be at the Recycle Depot. Microwaves will not be accepted.
E-Waste and hazardous waste can be taken to the Recycle Depot at 4919 49 St from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a good chance to dispose of e-waste and hazardous waste as the event is held just once a year.
Bentley will also have a recycling roundup to dispose of e-waste and hazardous waste on May 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Those items can be dropped off at 4624 50 St. next to the Bottle Depot.
Rimbey will also start a yard waste collection on May 14 that continues every Friday throughout the spring and summer. Clear plastic bags will be available at the Town Office on May 1 to pick up yard waste to leave for pickup.
