Town switching garbage collection contract
The Town is switching over garbage collection next month and hopes are that it will be a smooth transition.
As of February 6, 2017, GFL Environmental Inc. will have the contract for solid waste collection for the Town of Drumheller. This is an exclusive franchise agreement for four years.
"We would like to thank H & H Huxted for their excellent service to the Drumheller area over the past thirteen years" said director of infrastructure Darryl Drohomerski. "GFL was chosen as their contract meant a lower overall cost to the Municipality when the costs of residential and commercial collections were combined. We are confident in their abilities to provide collection services to the community.”
Residential garbage collection will take place on the same collection day schedule as before. Commercial customers will be approached by GFL to establish new service contracts in the coming weeks. GFL is the company businesses are required to use for everyday garbage.
GFL stated, "GFL Environmental Inc. would like to thank the Town of Drumheller for this opportunity to be your exclusive solid waste collection service provider. We look forward to servicing both the residents and the commercial businesses of Drumheller. We will be sending out a communication piece shortly to all commercial businesses to gather required information to make the switch to GFL as seamless as possible for you. If you have any further questions please email us at drumheller@ gflenv.com.”
