Water Shut Off

May 16, 2022

The Saskatchewan Health Authority issued a Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) to the 100 and 200 blocks of 2nd Ave W ONLY due to a depressurization to facilitate a water line repair. Effective immediately. 

Please consult this SHA document on PDWAs or contact us at 306-648-3301 if you have any questions or concerns. 

 

Compost Collection Week: May 24-27

Did you know that compost does not belong in your household waste or at the landfill? To remind all residents of the Town’s Compost Depot, Public Works will collect your yard waste next week only.
 
Place your yard waste in paper bags, non-greased cardboard or clear plastic bags by the curb and we will pick it up between May 24 and May 27. 2022. You may also use plastic totes or steel containers which can be dumped into our truck and returned to you.
 
Acceptable materials include
  • grass clippings
  • leaves
  • dead vegetation
  • small branches (less than 12” in length)
Remember this is also our Free-Dump Week, so clean up your yard and take those bigger non-organic items to the landfill.
 
The Town’s compost depot is located west of Bettez Street on 6th Avenue. Help us keep organic materials out of our landfill!
 
For more information, contact us at 306-648-3301 or visit the Public Works page.
