Happy Holidays from the Ward 6 Team!
We hoped you enjoyed reading our Ward 6 Report that was delivered to Ward 6 residents in early November and can also be found at calgary.ca/ward6. In that newsletter, we have set up four Councillor Chat opportunities around Ward 6 in 2016. Please join us on January 16, 2016 at Glendale Community Association (2405 Glenmount Drive SW) from 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m. Our January Ward 6 Report will highlight important issues from 2015 and look to the year ahead. Due to anti-spam laws, if you are interested, you must specifically request email updates at calgary.ca/ward6connect. You may withdraw your consent at any time.
Did you know you can recycle your Christmas tree and get free mulch for next season? Each January the City collects real Christmas trees from homes that receive black cart garbage collection. Temporary drop-off locations are also available. Please remove all decorations, tinsel, plastic and string before placing your tree out for collection. This program diverts over 35,000 trees from going to the landfill! You can leave your real Christmas tree next to your black cart which will be chipped into mulch and made available for residents for garden/yard use which can be picked up for free from the East Calgary Landfill. For more information visit calgary.ca and type in Christmas tree recycling program.
Although weather forecasting is calling for one of the warmest winters on record due to a strong El Nino system, snow and ice clearing are important services to ensure safe mobility for Calgarians. When a snow event does occur, you can check calgary.ca/roadconditions
for frequent updates on road conditions, snow route parking bans, as well as which routes have and have yet to be plowed. Visit calgary.ca for winter driving tips
including taking the time to winterize your vehicle and giving plenty of distance when approaching cars in front of you. Stay safe and enjoy the 2015 Holiday Season!
