Insect Pest Surveys

Each year, entomologists from AAFC Research Centres collaborate with extension agrologists, crop specialists and industry groups to conduct insect pest surveys in feild crops throughout the prairies. The surveys furnish valuable information as to what insect pest species are present at different times of the year, and also provide an estimate of their density within different crops.

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.
