The Town of Indian Head

There will be no charge at the Waste Transfer Station for local yard waste loads on May 8th & 9th, 2021. Examples of this material are leaves and yard waste, branches, trees and pruning. The Town hopes this will aid resident’s efforts to clean up their yards.

Hours will be Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Community Clean-Up

This time of year, Communities in Bloom usually organizes our annual spring clean-up. Once again we are asking each family to help spruce up the Town.  Here are some tips:

  • Wear gloves; give everyone a small plastic bag.
  • Start with your own property; it’s a great safe spot to have young children help.
  • Head over to your favourite hang-out spot - playgrounds, parks, or walking routes; dispose of the garbage in your own bin.
  • If your family is involved in soccer or ball, head to those venues and spend some time sprucing up the fields.  Start small, and do a great job of one area at a time.  Remember the hedges and fence lines.
  • Own a business? Take 5 minutes, 5 days a week to walk around your property. Customers come in your front door, so it deserves attention.
  • Love to wander the Tourist Information area with your dog?  It always needs TLC.  Just remember to do a small area well, before you move further afield.
  • Looking for more of a challenge?  Pick a major entrance to your town – the gateways we call them - take several garbage bags; park midway and head off in one direction, then cross the road and walk back on the other side.  Leave full big bags at the town shop.
  • Pick an area – there is litter everywhere this time of year.  PITCH-IN and take pride in your community.

Community Cleanup doesn’t have to be a specific day, and it can be done any time and could be done over and over again.  THANKS for your efforts.  Indian Head Communities in Bloom Committee
