Billing & Payment options for your convience The Town of Coaldale offers residents options for billing and payment procedures to save you time and ensure you never miss a utility payment. With E-Bill, residents can receive their bills in a timely manner rather than by traditional mail delivery. Sending bills electronically is also more environmentally responsible as it doesn’t generate any actual paper billing. Not only does E-Bill save time and reduce handling and mailing costs it also gives residents the convenience of being able to access their town bill anywhere they can access their email. Residents can also sign up for pre-authorized debit. You receive your bill at the beginning of the month and that amount is automatically taken out of your account on the last business day of the month. Included with the E-Bill is the Town’s monthly newsletter, Coaldale Connection. You can also register online with your bank to pay your town bill online. If you would like to sign up to receive an E-Bill or for Pre-Authorized Debit, please contact Taryn in our utilities department at 403-345-1318.

TIPP spreads tax payments over 12 months

Our TIPP program allows you to make monthly payments from January to December each year. This program is a great way to budget and a convenient and reliable way of ensuring that your tax bill is paid. The town does not charge any administrative fees or penalties provided that your monthly payments are made. If you are interested in enrolling in the program, application forms are available on our website at www.coaldale.ca or at the town office. Contact Kyley in our tax department at 403-345-1317 for more information. You can apply for TIPP up to to May 31, 2018. If your application is received after Jan. 1, 2018 you will be required to make an initial payment equal to the total of the missed installments for 2018.

Community Recycling Site:

Hours of Operation: Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Location: 1421 – 13 Street, East of Town of Coaldale shop

Items accepted at this site: Cardboard & Box board, Mixed paper, Newsprint & Magazines, Books, Tin Cans, Glass, All electronics, Large metal items and Fridges, Freezers, Water Coolers & Air Conditioners- for which a $20 fee is assessed. Please note this is NOT a location for refundable recyclables.

For any items not on this list please refer to the recycling pamphlet or the town’s website at www.coaldale.ca Spring Clean-up The Town uses a coupon voucher system to help offset the cost to dispose of additional waste. Landfill coupons/tokens are used to cover the City of Lethbridge’s disposal fees. These coupons can be used by residents to dispose of additional waste that typically follows spring clean-up, household renovations and other “deep cleans.” The goal of this program is to make spring cleanup and other residential maintenance more convenient and affordable for residents. Additionally, the coupon service can be utilized year round, so home renovations do not have to coincide with an annual, and at times unpredictable, clean-up schedule. For more information on the program go to the Town’s website at coaldale.ca or http://www. coaldale.ca/services/utilities-and-services/

Perfect For: Those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine. How It Works: Aqua Zumba® blends the Zumba® philosophy with water resistance for one pool party you shouldn’t miss! Benefits: There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba® class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.

Aqua Zumba® July 5th to August 30th Thursdays, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Drop-Ins $8 Register at the Coaldale Pool prior to class start time.

Three streams of the Solid Waste Program

As of early 2018 the Town of Coaldale began offering three streams of collection in the curbside pick-up with the addition of composting to the existing garbage and recycling collection.

Information on the program and pick-up schedules are available on our website and at the Town Office. Online visit http://www. coaldale.ca/services/utilities-and-services/ In order to accommodate yard waste the composting carts are picked up weekly from March 1 to November 30, switching to bi-weekly pickup through the winter, December 1 to February 28. With the addition of composting, garbage pick up changed to every other week as the composting will allow residents to reduce their garbage.
