Brooks Brooks new compost site open for the season
SUBMITTED The Municipal Compost Site for the City of Brooks
is now open to the public for the season. The site is located at the Newell Recycling Depot at 279 Veiner Road and will accept yard waste such as grass clippings, leaves, small branches etc. The City will no longer be operating a separate
drop off site and has closed the site at the old rodeo grounds. The Municipal Compost Site is open from April 1 to

Compost Site starting at 10 a.m. and will leave the site open over the hour lunch. Any illegal dumping at the Compost Site will result in a $200 fine for the first offence and a $400 fine for each subsequent offence. Video surveillance equipment has been purchased for the site and has been installed to monitor the area.
Although the site will be closed from Nov. 1 until
March 31, winter drop-off times can be co-ordinated through the Newell Recycling Service. Contact Newell Recycling Service at 403-362-2132 to schedule a winter drop-off. The new Municipal Composting Site was developed
through a multi-organizational partnership between the City of Brooks, Newell Recycling Association and the Newell Regional Solid Waste Management Authority. Funding for the site was also provided by
Alberta Environment. Hate Crime Awareness Day April 24 Alberta Hate Crime Awareness Day is an annual community event sponsored by the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee. On April 24, the City of Brooks will participate in

41086384•04/20/12 Earth Day: an international event
On Sunday, April 22, more than 500 million people will celebrate Earth Day. This important environmental event is an attempt to mobilize the planet and remind everyone that even small gestures are essential to save our environment.
Created by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970, Earth Day unites individuals, organizations, and businesses in the same environmental challenge: the reduction of our ecological footprint. For 42 years now, various cultural and educational activities have been organized around the world to raise people’s awareness of environmental issues, and in particular to promote and encourage concrete actions that will
reduce the ecological footprint of human beings.
An ecological footprint is the measure of human demand on land and water to supply the resources a human population consumes as well as the absorption of the resulting waste. No one will be surprised to learn that the current demand on natural resources is not sustainable: global consumption is such that more than one planet would be necessary to satisfy our current demand!
Earth Day is the ideal occasion to do something concrete for the environmental cause. Planting a tree, using public transport, recycling, reusing, and composting are all gestures that will have a positive impact on the environment. Earth Day is the time to get moving on this issue, to act now, for ourselves and for future generations.
Earth Day is a time for everyone to remember how important even small gestures are in safeguarding.
