“Please don’t throw away anything that is flammable, hot ashes, or chemicals. These items have a tendency of igniting the refuse load in a BFI rear loader. Ashes can be put out for regular garbage collection but must be fully cooled and in tightly sealed plastic bags.”
Contact the Municipal Office, 204-857-3821, to see if your area is eligible for curb-side waste collection.
