If it works, why change?
McLennan town council agreed at its April 12 meeting to continue with the annual Spring Cleanup with no changes from last year.
“Do we want to do what we did last year?” Mayor Michele Fournier asked council.
“It worked pretty good last year.”
Council agreed although Councillor Dwayne Stout had one question.
“Does anyone feel we didn’t have enough days last year?” he asked.
“No,” replied Councillor Sue Delaurier.
After the meeting, CAO Lorraine Willier said the Town allows residents of McLennan to dispose of their household waste in the fenced area at the public works yard once a year for a small fee.
“We have designated areas for items such as appliances, batteries, paint, metal, electronics and other small household items such as furniture, mattresses, etc.” she says.
“Residents can drop off their off items or arrange to have their waste picked up at the curb.”
This year, Spring Cleanup will be from Friday, May 5 to Monday, May 8. Friday and Monday the hours are from 3-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday the hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“Residents have to register at the gate with the attendant on site and pay the applicable fee,” says Willier.
Disposal fees are $5 per load or $25 if you want it picked up at the curb, $10 for non-freon appliances and $30 for freon appliances.
An alternate date not yet announced will be set if the weather is poor.
