NOTICE TO RANCHERS AND PRODUCERS

Cleanfarms is a company that is known mainly for recycling various plastics such as herbicide containers, twine, and clean grain bags. They now will also be taking expired medications and herbicides/pesticides.

According to their website, cleanfarms.ca, they will be in the Fairview area in 2022 but at this time, they are unsure of the dates although probably sometime in the summer.

This notice is to inform you that Clean Farms service will be available, and we ask you not to dispose of the hazardous materials by burning or burying them until they can be brought to them for proper disposal. More information will be given to you via M.D. of Fairview website and social media as we go forward, otherwise check their website in 2022 as there will be more details when they have their times and date set.
