** Effective December 16, 2019 – ANY AND ALL HOSE MUST BE CUT INTO 48″ LENGTHS **
We have been asked by the Lloydminster landfill that we do not accept any hoses, until they have been cut into 48″ long pieces. The long hoses get caught in their landfill packers and wreck the equipment.
Please click the link above to see the new now accepted items and instructions for disposal. INCLUDING Grain Bags, Baler twine, Televisions, Paint and Antifreeze!
** A reminder to those dropping off grain bags, that they need to be clean and rolled tightly otherwise penalties will be incurred**

The most relevant restrictions related to grain bag burning can be found in The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2002, under Section 4(1) – Prohibition on discharges and in The Clean Air Regulations under Section 11 – Prohibition, burning.

Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council
Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council has promoted backyard composting for more than 30 years. More than half of what goes into waste facilities can be composted. Residents who compost at home benefit not only themselves by producing a valuable gardening product, but also their communities by keeping materials out of the waste stream.
SWRC has free online resources on backyard composting:
- Composting in 60 seconds video series — these videos offer concise information on various aspects of composting, including choosing a bin, using finished compost, composting in winter, trench composting, vermicomposting and bokashi composting
