Public Works Manager
As part of the provincially mandated closure planning for the solid waste site (landfill) the Town of Gravelbourg will be developing plans for a transfer station to address bulk items that will not fit into the standard grey garbage cart; this includes large recyclables such as scrap metal; larger refuse pieces, and; tree limbs and branches, etc. The Town has not yet selected any potential transfer station sites, but will provide more information to residents as it becomes available.
