IT’S WIN-WIN, GREEN AND FUN!!

FREE STUFF in Fairview

Sat. May 6 | 10am-4pm Put items out on your front lawn or driveway that you no longer need but someone else may. Then, drive or walk around town, have a look to see if others have something you need. If yes, take it, it’s free! At the same time, get to know the people in your community.

THINK “GREEN”!

Why clutter the landfill with things someone else could use?

RULES

Everything must be free. YOU must clean up at the end of the day. The Town will not pick up left items. Please do not leave clutter on lawns. First come, first served. Items must be placed on your private property, not town boulevards.

SEE THEM LIVE!

Weeds Weeds Weeds

Weeding is a pain! Fairview residents take pride in maintaining clean and tidy yards. Yet it never hurts to have a quick refresher on the Town of Fairview’s strategy against those notoriously nasty, noxious and nuisance weeds: The Town of Fairview shares a weed inspector with the M.D. of Fairview No. 136. The weed inspector will routinely do checks within the Town and surrounding area, and will take calls to inspect particular properties if requests are made to the Town. The weed inspector will be searching out the following noxious plants:

Canada Thistle

Scentless Chamomile

Creeping Bellflower

Perennial Sow Thistle

Dame’s Rocket

Leafy Spurge

Dandelions are NOT noxious weeds! Since late 2010, dandelions are no longer included in the Weed Control Act. However, yards that appear to have been neglected may be pursued under the Town’s Nuisance Bylaw.

Call 780.835.5461

for further information about the enforcement process for dandelions and for noxious weeds.

Town Utility Bills Your utility bills are mailed out at the beginning of each month (for the

previous month’s consumption). New radio frequency meters have been installed in almost all of the households and businesses. You will receive an accurate monthly bill for actual consumption. After the actual reading, you will be charged $2.95 per cubic meter for residential accounts and non-residential accounts. In addition to the consumption rate for water you will be charged a flat rate for the Sewer service for residential and non-residential accounts. Our Capital Replacement fee has gone back to a flat monthly fee. If your bill is exceedingly high, check your toilet(s), faucets, humidifiers, icemakers and outdoor taps for leaks.

We are pleased to offer our residents the option of paperless billing. This means that you would receive an email copy of your bill each month instead of the paper copy in the mail. As an incentive to sign-up for this service, there is currently a $5 credit on your first utility bill upon signing up. To avoid the dreaded “Blue Note” we also have a preauthorized payment plan that debits your account on the 20th of each month. This debit can only be from a valid bank account. This saves you from forgetting to pay your bill by the end of the month.

The current utility bylaw may be viewed online at www.fairview.ca 12

REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE GARBAGE & RECYCLABLES COLLECTION All residential garbage and recyclables are collected on Wednesdays by Prairie Disposal’s automated collection system. Every residence has been allocated one black bin for household waste and one blue bin for recyclables. The bins are provided at no charge, however if a bin is lost or damaged, the resident will be responsible for the replacement cost. Place both bins on the street with wheels touching the curb, one metre of clearance between each bin and any other object, such as a vehicle. What can go in the black garbage cart? Any bagged household garbage that you would normally place out for collection should be placed in the black cart. Absolutely no hazardous materials or loose garbage. What if I can’t get all my garbage in the cart? The equivalent of three bags will fit in the cart. If your cart is overflowing (lid will not close), it will not be collected. Additional bags placed at the curb will be picked up if they have a “bag tag” sticker which can be purchased at the town office.

What can go in the blue recycling bin? Newsprint, heavy paper, mixed paper, box board, cardboard, rinsed food cans, rinsed beverage containers, hard plastics #1 to 7 and deposit items. What should not go into my blue recycling bin? Plastic toys, bubble wrap, plastic bags/film, styrofoam, glass, ceramics, toxic items, electronics, small appliances, diapers, scrap metal or wood, food or yard waste, unrinsed food containers, soiled paper (used tissue or paper towel, pizza boxes smeared with cheese etc.), soiled containers.

Please remove your emptied bins from the street the same day. This is crucial for both snow removal purposes and general neighborhood courtesy.

The Fairview and Area Learning Store is an outreach school offering a complete high school program with an emphasis upon flexibility and addressing individual needs in a caring and supportive environment. We have continuous intake so students may begin their program at any time throughout the school year. Our program allows students to complete course work at their own pace and offers four diploma exam writings per year. Individualized programming, on-site instruction, marking and final exam writings for all courses occurs whenever a student completes course work, rather than on an institutional timeline, thus giving students greater freedom to chart their own path.
