Conservation Educators

Between the months of May to September, the Town of Okotoks embarks on a campaign of conservation awareness in our community. Four Conservation Educators visit approximately 2,000 households, educating the community on water and energy conservation and waste management.  Look for the 2017 Conservation Educators in your neighbourhood and throughout the community this coming spring/summer. 

The Educators also attend all summer community events and provide conservation presentations to children at schools and summer day camps. The team works closely with several Town Business Centres, including Parks, Resource Recovery and Community Programs as well as EPCOR Water Services to coordinate water, waste and energy education initiatives.

During the household visits, the Conservation Educators engage residents in conversations about increasing waste diversion from landfill and how to reduce household water and energy consumption. Residents are reminded of the outdoor watering schedule and hours. The Town's Blue Cart Recycling program, Cut n Call Yard Waste Program and the Residential Water Conservation Rebate Program are promoted during their household visits. Visits are conducted throughout the week from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm.

Wondering About Waste?
Questions about what goes in each cart? How to keep your kitchen pail clean? Sign up today for a household visit and a Conservation Educator will come to your home to help you identify the appropriate items to place in each of your carts and answer all your Universal Cart Program questions.  Contact a Conservation Educator today to book your appointment!
