Want do you think about garbage & recycling, and the RCMP?
We want your viewpoints on garbage and recycling services, and bear-proof bins to eliminate the 70% of waste created by Banff residents that goes straight to landfill. Also, see our community's response to the Banff RCMP survey on policing and communications. Both are available at banffviewpoints.ca.
