New Organics Rules
UPDATED May 7, 2021
Standstone will be collecting Organics beginning May 1, until November 1. The ORGANICS cart is for YARD WASTE only, as it will be accepted at our local Highway 43 Waste Commission for composting and ground cover. Below is a list of acceptable items to place in the Organics cart.
Any contaminated carts will be identified and flagged as contaminants. The contaminated load will be taken directly to Highway 43 Landfill and deposited as WASTE, instead of ORGANICS. This additional cost will be paid the municipality and may be passed on to the resident.
Vegetable garden waste can go in your waste cart.
Happy Spring to you all.

Flowering Rush is a prohibited, noxious weed that has been introduced into several Alberta water bodies. It is an aquatic plant that grows as an emergent plant along shorelines of both lakes and rivers. Flowering Rush was brought to North America from Europe as a garden plant. This variety will form dense stands which will interfere with recreational lake use. Flowering Rush crowds out our native plants and has the potential to fill in an entire lake if left uncontrolled.
