GRANDE PRAIRIE – Aquatera Utilities Inc., in partnership with Alberta Recycling, invites you to join them on Saturday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eco Centre (10431 96 Avenue) for the Waste Roundup!

The Waste Roundup is not only an opportunity for residents to dispose of hazardous waste, but also an opportunity to learn about how the Eco Centre is a safe alternative to disposing hazardous items at the landfill.

This year’s event will focus on safe disposal and reduction of solid waste, recycling initiatives of paint and paint related items, and electronics processing. A shredding truck will also be on site, courtesy of Prairie Disposal, so customers can safely dispose of sensitive documents.

“These products, as well as many others, can be hazardous and require special care and handling to ensure they are safely and properly disposed,” says Ryan Ropcean, Solid Waste Operations Assistant Manager. “Improper disposal can contaminate our water, land and air, and be hazardous to human health and wildlife.”

Residents are encouraged to bring their hazardous waste, including electronics, batteries, paint, and small appliances to the Eco Centre to be safely disposed at no charge!

The event will include pop, games, recycling demonstrations and more!
