LIBRARY SERVICES THROUGH FORT FRANCES PUBLIC LIBRARY & TECHNOLOGY CENTRE
Effective September 1, 2015, the Township entered into an agreement with the Fort Frances Public Library Board for library services for all Alberton residents and property owners. There is no fee payable for this service but proof of residency or property ownership in Alberton is required to be provided to library staff upon applying for a library membership. The Alberton Library Reimbursements Program which was in place prior to the agreement has been terminated.
The FFPLTC offers both regular library services plus so much more, including online access to books and regular events like movie showings and room rentals. Access FFPLTC’s website.
Waste collection services are not provided by the Township; however, private weekly collection service can be arranged directly with Asselin Transportation Ltd. Alberton residents are permitted to dispose of their waste directly at the Fort Frances Landfill Site under an agreement with Fort Frances – check the Town of Fort Frances’ website for current tipping fees.
