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.

What NOT to flush?

Posted on April 15, 2020

The Town would like to remind residents that the only things to flush down the toilet is toilet paper and human waste. Anything else can clog pipes and create sewer backups which can be costly for both the Town and homeowner. Items to NOT flush include: Wipes, even if they say “flushable” or “disposable”. Facial tissue, napkins, paper towel, Lysol wipes, etc. These items do not break down like toilet paper and can cause major blockages in the sewer system. Please dispose of these items in the trash.

Problem Coyotes

Posted on February 26, 2020

There have been some recent reports of coyotes roaming streets in town. If you spot a coyote within town limits please call or text Kelly, Pest Control Officer,  at 306-552-9506. Should you encounter a coyote follow these safety tips: Do not run or turn your back on the coyote. Make noise. Yell, clap hands, blow a whistle and try to make yourself look larger. Do not allow a coyote to get in between you and your pet or child—keep children close to you. Keep pets under control to avoid creating additional stress for the animal. As always it is best to try to avoid a close encounter in the first place. Remove attractants such as pet food left outside, fallen fruit, dirty BBQ grills and unsecured trash or compost. Always be aware of your surroundings. Read More
