Recycling Bins

If you found a recycling bin last Friday after that big wind and don’t know who it belongs to, please feel free to drop it off at the Town Office so we can find it a good home again.

And if you lost your recycling bin last Friday, please let us know and we will work on getting replacements for you. You can call us at 403-442-3085 or email

Thank you!

Sidewalk Work

A Sidewalk Remediation company will be working throughout Trochu for the next several days, removing tripping hazards on sidewalks and curbs. Please allow them space and follow all posted signs. There will be some dust created during this process.

Dear Arboretum Supporters.

With the 2018 Christmas season a few weeks away, we are once again asking for your kind support.  Thursday, November 22rd, is the date set for our annual Xmas Market.  With your kind support the market has been quite a success over the past 9 years.  This market helps supply us with our purchase of flowers for the summer and anything relative to making the beds look beautiful over the summer for everyone’s enjoyment.  The market will be held in the Trochu Community Center from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and a concession booth is available, plus Santa makes a visit for free pictures with the kids.

The Arboretum Society will be hosting its annual fund raising event consisting of a bake sale and gift basket raffle.  For the raffle, you are invited to contribute an item or two, ranging from nuts, candy, chocolates, cheese, crackers, a new ornament or any new item that is associated with Christmas.  We even appreciated teen or children’s new items.  Baking items such as homemade bread, buns, pies – no cream pies please, cakes, cookies, muffins, tarts, fudge, poppycock, bark or any of your homemade baked specialties will be gladly accepted.  Please bring your contribution seasonally packaged ready to sell and covered in plastic, saran wrap or cellophane.  We abide by the Alberta Health rules.

Please have your donations to the hall between 10 a.m. and noon of the day of the market.  This allows time for the Arboretum members to prepare the raffle baskets for display (baking) and price.  The Raffle basket items please drop off at the Town office or Balkwills by November 18th, as this allows us time to get the baskets arranged and ready for the market.

Thank you once again for your generosity and support of the Trochu Arboretum and Gardens.
