Plenty of options for windstorm waste disposal

City of Red Deer extending hours and adding locations for people to dump tree branches

City of Red Deer has extended hours and provided new dumping locations to help dispose of the massive amount of storm debris.

The snow storage site at Edgar Industrial Park, 6859 Edgar Industrial Drive, will remain open until July 3 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. to collect fallen branches and trees free of charge.

Residents can also bring green branches to the City’s Waste Management Facility at no cost. In addition to regular hours, the Waste Management Facility will open this Sunday, June 25 and next Sunday, July 2 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to accept storm waste.

A second entrance is being set up in anticipation of the flood of vehicles expected over the next few days.

As well, the city is making it easier to get rid of debris through regular garbage pickup.

“We are relaxing our waste bag limit for areas affected by the power outage,” said city manager Craig Curtis. “The relaxation is in effect for these areas until June 29.”
