HLCA Tour the Lights
Date: Thursday, December 13 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Let’s bring some festivities to Heritage Lakes. One of our board members and residents will be decorating his house and syncing it to music!
On this evening, we will meet in front of the house and have hot choc., treats, and glow sticks available. We will also provide a map of residents who wish to proudly share their outdoor lighting. We are hoping to have some caroling so bring your beautiful ‘in tune’ or ‘shower’ voice!
Cost: $2…..or if you are an HLCA Member: Free
We would like to invite you to our info session on how to promote Community Awareness and build a safer neighbourhood on your street(s). We have invited speakers that include: local RCMP, St. Albert Citizens Patrol, St. Albert Neighbourhood Watch, and a rep who will give tips on lighting and surveillance systems. We will also allot some time for questions/answers after the presentations.
Please RSVP to this event as we would like to have an idea of how many people would like to join and hopefully provide enough seating for everyone.
Event is free, however, we are taking donations for our local Food Bank. Some items they are currently short on is Enfamil A+ baby formula and school snacks.
Gloves, garbage bags, and area to clean will be provided.
Big bin will be located in front of the school. This is a good time to renew your membership as it is free for members. Membership fees are $20/year and helps us organize events like these and other community engagement activities. Please note that this event is on a first come first serve basis; Once the Bin is full the event will be closed. Memberships will be verified before disposal is allowed. Maximum one (1) large item or 200lbs, but multiple bags per membership (please be courteous).
Please read the list below on items that can or cannot be disposed of:
- PAINT, STAINS, AND LACQUERS
- You cannot throw paint, paint thinners, lacquers, or wood stains in a dumpster, with the exception of latex paints. If you have leftover latex paint that can’t be reused or recycled, allow the paint to solidify by pouring it into a box with kitty litter or shredded paper. Once it’s hard and dry, toss it in the dumpster.
- Because a majority of landfills in the Canada do not accept tires, you cannot put tires in a dumpster. However, there are various ways to properly dispose of scrap tires. One option involves taking old tires to your local auto parts store or tire dealership.
- HAZARDOUS WASTE
- Asbestos, pesticides, motor oil and other automotive fluids, propane tanks, household cleaners, ink and resins, contaminated soil or absorbents, and medical waste should never be put in a dumpster. In most communities, there are scheduled community collection events where people can drop off their hazardous waste for proper disposal.
- Car batteries and dry-cell batteries cannot be put in a dumpster because they can leak chemicals that harm the environment.
