The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Sub­mit­ted The Drumheller Mail

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.”
