Important Notice to the

 Town of Rimbey Commercial Community, Schools, and Churches

A Special Meeting of Council held January 5, 2018, centered on a presentation of Recycle 101 from Christina Seidel of the Alberta Recycle Council of Alberta, where it was encouraged to have the Commercial Community, Schools and Churches participate in recycling within the Town of Rimbey.  She noted there is a 3 to 1 ratio of recycling from the commercial sector which is going into the landfill, instead of being recycled.  The biggest percentage of this is cardboard.


In order to formulate a plan of action, the Town of Rimbey needs to determine how much of an impact recycling from businesses, schools and churches will have on our recycle facility.


At the Regular Meeting of Council, held Tuesday, March 13, 2018, Council discussed this topic and in an effort to assist with the determination of the impacts, passed the following motion:


Motion 089/18


Moved by Councillor Payson to conduct a trial period whereby Council will allow the Town of Rimbey commercial customers, schools and churches to use the transfer station for recycling, free of charge, to determine the increased volume of recycled material from commercial users, with the trial period ending June 30, 2018.




Town of Rimbey Commercial Users, Schools and Churches are welcome to transport their recyclables to the Recycle Facility until the end of the trial period on June 30, 2018.  The Recycle Facility is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Tuesdays and Saturdays.
