2018 Spring Waste Extravaganza
The Town of Kindersley is hosting a Spring Waste Extravaganza on Saturday, June 9 to provide residents with a one-stop opportunity to dispose of all your household hazardous waste, scrap metal, yard waste, electronic recyclables, and much more!
The Waste and Recycle Centre along Highway 21 will be open for extended hours on June 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and all minimum charges will be waived for the entire day. Household Hazardous Waste, including adhesives, aerosols, automotive fluids, batteries, pesticides and fertilizers, can be disposed of FREE of charge that day as the Town has invited GFL Environmental to provide this service. See full list below.
Other items that can be disposed of for FREE that day are:
- Scrap metal
- Yard Waste (grass clippings, trees, leaves, branches, clay, landscape bark, garden waste)
- Electronics, batteries, fax machines, televisions, phones, etc.
- Regular recyclable material (cardboard, tin, paper, plastics - not including bags and plastic wrap)
Please note that while ALL MINIMUM CHARGES WILL BE WAIVED, free disposal will not apply to all waste. Regular tipping fees will be applied to all regular baleable waste not included in the list above.
In addition to hazardous household waste collection, the Town is partnering with SARCAN, Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council, and Loraas Environmental to provide drop-off collection areas and information tents about the various recycling methods available.
