Garbage bins must be kept off the road allowance except for Tuesdays when garbage pickup is scheduled. Garbage bins left on the roads interfere with the road crew’s ability to effectively maintain the roads and ditches. Garbage bins left on roadways can also serve as a safety hazard to other motorist. The Rural Municipality will not be responsible for any damages caused by the graders if your bins are not back a minimum of 150 feet from the center of the municipal right of way.
