Saskatchewan ranks highest, of any province in Canada, in the number of landfills. Last fall, it was reported that 73% of the landfills were found to be ‘non-compliant’ in 2014/15.
The Saskatchewan Public Works Association (SPWA), along with partners from the regulatory, recycling, municipal, and waste industries, have been brought together at our Fall ‘Landfill & Recycling Workshop'.
This workshop is designed to assist council, administration, and operations staff to learn more about matters such as landfill regulations and permitting, alternate waste streams and receivers.
