Landfill Changes

The R.M. landfill has become a transfer station and is now only open to R.M. ratepayers. Instead of putting garbage in pits, garbage will now be collected in bins which will then be transferred to the landfill in Regina. The recycling bins will remain in place for ratepayers to utilize, as well.

The hours of operation will remain the same: Wednesdays, noon to 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The following items are not allowed in the garbage bins: asphalt shingles, cement, chemical containers, dead animals, electronics (recyclable at SARCAN), grain, hazardous waste, house demolition, liquid domestic sewage, new house construction garbage, petroleum by-products, propane tanks, railway ties, recyclable materials, refrigeration units, tires, and wire of any description.

Natural Gas Pipeline Inspection

SaskEnergy and its subsidiary, TransGas, will be surveying for natural gas leaks and conducting visual inspections of utility right-of-ways in our area as part of their annual safety program. The inspections will take place over the next few months and will be completed by SaskEnergy or a qualified representative who has been contracted. Field representatives will carry identification indicating that they work for or on behalf of SaskEnergy.
