Recycling Bin Inspection Day

There will be a recycling bin inspection day on July 10th, 2020 starting at 9:00 A.M. For those with their recycling bins out on the curb, they will be rated on if everything in the bin is recyclable and if the bin is well positioned on the curb. Notes will be written down and placed on the doorknob if there is anything in the bin that doesn’t belong in the recycling. Items that are accepted in the recycling bin are as follows:

  • Paper and cardboard (Ex: boxes, milk and juice cartons, paper bags, paper, envelopes, etc.)
  • Glass (Ex: bottles, mason jars, etc.)
  • Metals (Aluminium plates, foil, cans, etc.)
  • Plastics (Anything that has the label of 1,2,3,4,5,7)

Non stretchable or metallic plastics are not accepted in the recycling bin. Spray cans, paint cans and any other household hazardous waste are not accepted in the recycling bin. However, if you need to dispose of them, they can be brought to the public works building where they will be disposed of properly. If you have any other questions about where to bring bulky waste or what is accepted in the recycling bin, contact Public Works at 418-788-3047.

Community Notice – General Contractors

As the warmer weather approaches, we realize a number of homeowners will begin making general repairs to their homes. To minimize the potential spread of COVID-19, contractors from outside of Listuguj will not be permitted entry into the community. However, this does not apply, if you are unable to find a contractor to suit your needs in the event of an emergency.

All community members are encouraged to find contract workers within Listuguj, to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. If you require immediate repairs (i.e. emergency amenities like plumbing or electrical) and are unable to find a contractor within our own community hire as needed subcontractors from low risk areas within Quebec or New Brunswick.

When arranging for repair work on your own home, here are the steps we ask that you take:

  1. Hire a local contractor.
  2. If you have to hire an outside contractor, the following guidelines must be followed:
    • Choose a contractor from a low risk area;
    • Only (1) contractor is allowed to work at a time;
  3. Minimise your contact with the contractor, and try to avoid the contractor going into your house unless the work requires it;
  4. The contractor crew should be no more than (4) workers for the whole project and they must comply with LMG safety regulations, in addition to, federal or provincial regulations;
  5. Contact Ali Barnaby at the Executive Office by calling 418-788-2136 or via email at ali.barnaby@listuguj.ca to provide the name of your contractor and the dates they will require access to the community.

Listuguj Capital & Infrastructure Update

The Listuguj Capital and Infrastructure Directorate provided Council with the following update this morning.

They are pleased to report that their team is continuously striving for quality in the services they offer the community. Their top priority is to bring Listuguj infrastructure and services above national standards in a way that allows us to maintain these high standards sustainably over the years. Every construction project and repair has been done with that goal in mind.

Perfecting our current infrastructures and services has given us the foundation to build future projects. This year’s projects were completed simultaneously with the planning of upcoming projects, most notably Listuguj Hills (previously known as the Busteed land).

This drive and proactive approach to community infrastructure is also what led Listuguj to receive an award for best drinking water. More information on this award will be provided in the coming week.
