KID funds a contract for garbage collection throughout the Improvement District and also funds the transfer of waste to approved landfill facilities. Alberta, Environment and Parks reimburses the Improvement District for waste removed from its facilities.
Garbage pickup occurs based on a schedule provided by our contracted service provider. To see the pickup schedule, report a full bin or service concerns, please call the Municipal office at 403-591-7774
The KID also operates a hazardous waste roundup and electronics recycling program.
