DISTRICT OF 100 MILE HOUSE
“SPRING CLEAN-UP” CAMPAIGN
Municipal residents are advised that the annual “Spring Clean-Up” campaign is coming up April 24th – April 28th, 2017.
The Municipal crew will collect branches, shrubs, clippings and the usual yard clean-up debris. They will not take old appliances or furniture. Small debris and clippings must be bagged.
Municipal staff will be monitoring the Municipality over this one week period and collect the refuse as residents tidy their yards.
Just set the debris out on the boulevard and our crew will pick it up.
Please use this opportunity to make our Municipality attractive!

100 MILE HOUSE GOES IDLE FREE!
100 Mile House is going Idle Free! The District of 100 Mile House, in partnership with the South Cariboo Sustainability Society, is launching a community campaign to reduce idling during the summer months (May 1st to Sept. 1st, 2013). The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness about the financial and environmental costs of idling and to educate people about the benefits of reduced idling to our health and our pocketbooks.
The campaign launch will take place on May 1st, 2013. Before that date, the District will be posting IDLE FREE ZONE signs at various locations in town, such as the District office on Birch Avenue, Centennial Park, the Visitor Information Centre, and Martin Exeter Hall. Businesses will also be invited to participate in the campaign by posting signs at their business location.
The District of 100 Mile House and the South Cariboo Sustainability Society are inviting everyone to participate in the campaign by reducing their vehicle idling. Remember to turn off your engine if you'll be stopped for more than 60 seconds. You will save money and minimize the negative health effects of excess exhaust. Unnecessary idling contributes to air pollution, which is linked to many respiratory problems such as asthma. You can also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by limiting vehicle idling.
Residents are encouraged to watch for the ads in the Free Press, which will have more information about the Idle Free 100 Mile House campaign.
