ARICHAT: The municipality is considering another waste disposal option.

During the regular monthly meeting of Richmond Municipal Council on September 25 in Arichat, Warden Brian Marchand said he’s received calls asking if the municipality would be willing to do a heavy garbage collection in the fall.

The municipality already conducted a heavy garbage collection last spring so the warden proposed another option.

“Can we give people a free period when they can haul it to the landfill, in the fall,” the warden asked?

“If people come in with under 400 kilograms [currently], they don’t pay anyway.”

Marchand directed staff to prepare a report comparing the cost of a second collection with the cost of allowing the public to take their heavy garbage into the landfill free-of-charge.
