  • Flushing of water lines will take place October 3 to October 6, 2017. You are reminded that the sediment in the lines is stirred up during this time and can create problems for laundry as water may be somewhat discoloured. To reduce the sediment from entering your household lines, refrain or reduce water consumption during this time.
  • Please be reminded that the Town of Foam Lake has converted the waste collection system to biweekly curbside pickups by Ottenbreit Sanitation Services, which started Tuesday, September 12, 2017 for residential and commercial locations. Please place your household cart at the curbside the evening before collection day to ensure pickup. All waste must be bagged and disposed of in the brown carts provided to you. Be careful not to overfill the bin as the lid must be completely closed in order for garbage to be collected. If your waste exceeds your bin’s capacity, please dispose of it at the Transfer Station, or leave it until the next pickup. Oversized items can be taken to the Transfer Station. Thank you for your co-operation. If you have any questions please contact the Town Office at (306) 272-3359.
