Partnership with Magasin TL and Metro Kelly Gracefield for our seniors

The Municipality has developed an assistance program for seniors during this time of isolation. Courtesy calls have been made to seniors in our population for a few weeks now to ensure that seniors are not missing any essential goods. The Magasin TL and Metro Kelly of Gracefield have agreed to prepare the orders picked up by the Municipality and we are delivering groceries and prescriptions to senior’s homes. You need to call the Municipal Office to place your orders. If you are a senior in our Municipality and you have not received a call and would need this service, please do not hesitate to contact us. It will be our pleasure to help you.

Hygiene measures to protect our personnel who collect garbage:

At home, used tissues, gloves, masks, wipes and other protective or cleaning products that are potentially contaminated must be placed in a sealed bag and then in a closed garbage container. Such materials must not be placed in the recycling bin or organic material bin.

When outside the home, if you use tissues, gloves, masks, wipes or other protective or cleaning products, be sure to dispose of them in the nearby garbage after use or bring them back home for proper waste handling.

Make sure to wash your hands before and after you tied your garbage and recycling bags.

The most important is to try and avoid all social contacts.

Thank you to protect the health of our staff that assures your garbage pickup.
