To grow, Beaumont requires additional lands to attract industrial and commercial development within its boundaries. Industrial development provides a strong, viable tax base to fund more infrastructure, facilities and services.
Beaumont has a long history of cooperation with our neighbouring municipalities. Our commitment to continue working with our neighbouring communities in the region remains high and we look forward to a transition whereby residents’ interests are kept at the forefront.

The three New Flyer Excelsior coaches are owned by Beaumont and are branded Beaumont Transit. Two buses will be in operation at any one time, with the third bus as a backup. The buses will be rotated through the schedule so that all there buses are used equally. The buses will be used by Beaumont Transit exclusively.
Beaumont has contracted ETS to provide the drivers, maintenance and storage of the buses. After consulting with other regional transit providers, ETS was deemed to be the best option for providing bus service to Beaumont. There are several reasons:
The buses will operate in the morning and afternoon at peak times. As ridership increases, additional trips per day may be added. Additional bus stops within Beaumont may be added also.
Beaumont is a growing community and having a commuter transit service is the first step in ensuring full mobility for students, workers and residents of all ages.

The new carts are owned by Beaumont. Previously, we rented the carts. Now, we have purchased the carts and we want to give you two clean new carts.
The contract with the previous firm expired and through a competitive process, we negotiated a good deal with Can Pak Environmental. One of the cost saving measures is to purchase our own carts. In the long run, this will be cost-effective.
A new grey garbage cart and a new green organics cart will be delivered to your home between Aug 21 and 31. The new carts will be provided before your old carts are removed. The carts will be delivered as close as possible to your last collection days in August.
No. The old carts will be removed on your regular collection days. Continue to use your old carts until they are removed. You can then start using your new carts. Please ensure you bring your old carts to the curb on your last collection days in August so they can be removed.
Note: If you are on the Friday A schedule, your old garbage cart will be removed on August 18 and your two new carts will be dropped off August 21. Your old organics cart will be removed August 25.
New cart deliveries will begin Aug 21 and will end Aug 31. Old carts will be removed on your regular collection days. Watch for a flyer that will be delivered to your home with details. Or, check the website at www.beaumont.ab.ca/cartswap. The best source for personalized information is the Keep it Green Beaumont waste app. Enter your address to get information for your residence.
Also, you can download Beaumont’s waste app called Keep it Green Beaumont. It’s available on the Apple store and Google Play. Enter your address and the information for your residence will be displayed.
Yes. The app is the best way to keep up to date as we plan to push notifications to each collection zone. There is also an online tool on the website at www.beaumont.ab.ca/cartswap and on our Facebook page. Simply enter your address and the information for your home will appear.
Give us a day or two. If your cart has still not been replaced, call us at 780-929-4306 and leave a message. We will get back to you. Or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use your old carts until they are removed. Your new carts will be emptied on your regular collection days beginning in September.

Yes, the carts are 240 litres in volume.
There are a few options:
Unfortunately, no. Currently, your second waste cart is provided by the waste collection company. After we have distributed new carts to all homes we will begin providing second carts. Contact us and we will arrange to drop off an extra cart. The cost to buy a second cart is $60 plus monthly collection fees, which will be added to your utility bill. Homeowners who choose to have a second waste cart will now have to pay the collection fees (fees to be determined).
2017 cart replacement program only includes replacement of Green Organic and Grey Carts. If you have received mini organic compost that was sent originally in 2009-10 by previous company Evergreen, you may keep it.
The cart replacement costs will be offset by lower operating costs. Your utility bill will not increase as a result of this initiative (unless you have a second waste cart). Beaumont will now own an important component of our waste collection service – the carts themselves. Previously, we rented the carts.
Audits of Beaumont’s garbage shows that a great deal of our garbage is actually organic or recyclable. Tipping fees at the regional landfill increase substantially every year, so there is a large financial incentive for all communities to sort waste into recyclable, organics and garbage.
As good global citizens, it is up to each of us to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. For sorting information that can help you lower your waste output, check out the Keep it Green Beaumont waste app.
The old carts belong to the waste company. The new carts will be owned by Beaumont. Over time, the cost of the new bins will be offset by the lower cost of collection. The new carts are the same size as the old carts; however they are more durable and will require fewer repairs.
Use your old carts until they are removed from your property. Use your new carts once the old carts have been removed. New carts will be emptied starting in September.
As Beaumont grows, it is important to create a downtown area that our children and grandchildren can enjoy and be proud of. We need to have design guidelines in place so that the residents of Beaumont determine the future look of downtown. The DUDCP project boundaries are 52 Avenue to the north, 50 Street to the east, 50 Avenue to the south and 55 Street to the west. The DUDCP was approved at the July 14, 2015 Council meeting.
Beaumont is growing and the trend is likely to continue. We’ve more than doubled in size in 10 years, and we have to prepare for the future by having design guidelines in place. Like most towns and cities, residents have indicated they want a downtown neighbourhood that is an attractive, pedestrian friendly, mixed-use destination with a variety of social, cultural, commercial and retail opportunities.
