Thanks to the new isolation standards, many of us have tackled our spring cleaning early. For those who haven’t, here is some additional motivation… The Town will be bringing in 3 large Loraas bins for residents to use. The bins will be located near the mailboxes, at the Town shop, and on the east side at the end of Park/Maple Street. Please ensure that all refuse is put inside the bins, anything left outside of the bins will NOT be collected. These bins are to be used by Grand Coulee residents only.

What CAN BE recycled?

Posted on April 24, 2020

Since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic, the amount of “human bodily fluid contaminated items” received at recycling facilities in the province has grown by an estimate 20-50 per cent. Residents are reminded to only put allowable recyclables in your blue bins. The Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council has a recycling search engine where residents can find out where they can properly and safely recycle items including batteries, tires, power tools, and more.
