Grande Prairie County, in partnership with the Alberta Recycling Management Authority, invites people to its annual recycling program at Bezanson School.
People are asked to bring all household hazardous waste for disposal, such as cleaners, chemicals, paint, batteries, used oil, propane tanks under 100 pounds, and tires. Computer equipment, televisions, cell phones, household appliances, power tools, toys, audiovisual equipment, musical instruments, etc. can be recycled or disposed of safely free of charge during the day. Recycling bins are available to dispose of tin, paper, cardboard, glass and returnable bottles.
Proceeds from refundable bottles brought in during the day will go to the county’s bottle donation program, which supports local charities and nonprofits. Anyone who stops by with recyclables can enter to win prizes, including a home composter or a county gift basket.
Unnecessary items are recycled into new paint, lubricating oils for the transportation industry, flooring for arenas, crumbs for new playgrounds, new electronics, and more.
The disposal site is located on 100th Street, south of 100th Avenue in Bezanson. It will be available on June 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If someone is unable to attend and is still looking to properly dispose of their unnecessary items, they can drop off their hazardous and recyclable waste free of charge at the Clairmont Recycling and Waste Management Center and other facilities during normal business hours.
