Alberta Environment has deemed small alkaline batteries (eg. AA, AAA) as non hazardous and landfill-able, however landfill fires can start as a result of the chemical reaction that takes place within these batteries. Therefore we should try our best to eliminate alkaline batteries from entering the municipal solid waste stream. Below is a list of facilities in Grande Prairie and area that will accept small alkaline batteries for recycling:

Recently the City of Grande Prairie has received some questions regarding clothes lines and whether there is a bylaw disallowing outside drying of clothes. Good news – there isn’t! However, depending on where you live there may be a restrictive covenant that does not allow for clothes lines. You may want to check with the developer to understand what restrictions are in place.
For those who don’t use a clothes line there are many benefits to drying your clothes outside. Hanging to dry outside will reduce static, reduce your energy consumption costs, sunlight is a natural sanitizing and bleaching agent, and line drying is much gentler on your clothes. If you are someone who utilizes a laundromat you could bring the clothes home wet and then hang to dry – saving money!
During the winter you can line dry inside. Basements, laundry rooms, spare rooms are all excellent places to line dry your clothing in the winter – if you don’t want to line dry outside.
We are slowly working to make change. For example, north on 100 Street a number of long tree “beds” have been built. The trees planted here are thriving compared to other individual trees planted along the same boulevard. As our budgets allow more of these “mass” plantings will occur and at other entryways as well.
