BEAVER COUNTY, Alberta: Claystone Waste announced today that the final steps to formalize the transition from Beaver Municipal Solutions have been completed.
Claystone was established as a municipally controlled corporation in 2020 by the Town of Tofield, the Town of Viking, the Village of Ryley, the Village of Holden and Beaver County. Previously, Claystone operated as Beaver Municipal Solutions under a regional services commission structure.
Prior to the founding of Claystone in 2020, an operating agreement was put in place to facilitate the seamless transfer of operations and assets from Beaver Municipal Solutions to the new municipally controlled corporation. This agreement allowed for a smooth transition of landfill services and assets including land, facilities, funds, contracts and employees from Beaver Municipal Solutions to Claystone.
The operating agreement detailed all steps required to complete the formal dissolution of Beaver Municipal Solutions as a regional services commission including a final transfer of lands, all permits, and concluding financial statements for the commission. These steps have now been completed and a request has been sent to Alberta Municipal Affairs to formally dissolve the commission.
Claystone Chief Executive Officer, Pierre Breau, said the completed transition and commission dissolution will not affect existing operations or customer contracts.
“We have been operating as Claystone for 18 months and the end of the commission as a legal entity will not impact our operations or our residential, industrial and municipal customers. Existing customer contracts and commercial relationships are maintained as the final pieces of transition to Claystone Waste are completed,” said Breau.
