Garbage, Recycle, and Construction Waste Pickup, and New Rates

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Loraas has informed us that effective immediately, they will be starting their collection route each week in Elbow.  All garbage and recycle carts should be placed curbside the night before in order to not miss the truck, which will be making its rounds by 7 a.m.

There have also been some changes in regards to the 4 – 6 yd construction bins and scheduling pickup.  Please inquire at the Village Office for more information on construction bins.

Loraas rates increased March 1, 2014, and Council has made the decision to provide this service on a cost-recovery basis; the $17/month you were being charged didn’t fully cover the actual charge from Loraas to provide this service.  The new rates will be $21.06/month for recycle & garbage service.  Starting this coming fall, seasonal properties that “turn off” the recycle & garbage service will continue to be charged $2/cart/month over the winter months.  There will no longer be the option of turning the carts in and not paying (Loraas’ policy, not ours!).
