FIRE BAN NOW IN PLACE FOR NORTHERN SASKATCHEWAN
Due to extreme wildfire hazards, the Ministry of Environment, in consultation with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport, has issued a ban on all open fires for all provincial forests, and for all provincial parks and recreation sites located within these forests.
As a result the RM of Dundurn has issued a Fire Ban until further notice, and the Town of Dundurn is supporting that decision. At this time the Landfill will NOT be accepting any more trees or branches for the burning pit. Please stay posted for further developments. If you have any questions, please call the RM Office at 306-492-2132. Thank you.
Town of Dundurn’s newest neighbourhood
Sunshine Meadows – book your lot today!
Starting March 1 2014 each Town residence with current black bin waste pick-up will have a blue recycling cart delivered for single stream recycling. This new service will replace the community recycling bins located by the Fire Hall. Your residential waste pick-up will become a bi-weekly service, meaning black carts will be picked up one week and the blue bins will be picked up the next week. There will not be an increase to the current waste pick-up fees of $15.00 per month. A Loraas recycling brochure and pick up calendar will be sent to each household in February. Blue bins will be delivered byÂ the end of February.
