garbage & recycle bins

  

The RM of Nipawin has removed the large Garbage and Recycle bins throughout the Municipality. 

  

These bins have been removed due to the abuse. The bins were intended for household garbage and recycling only. This has not been followed.

  

The council is open to practical suggestions for future Garbage and Recycling solutions for the ratepayers in the RM of Nipawin # 487.


Your Garbage & Recycling can be brought to the Waste Diversion Centre(Landfill/BARWA).  

Please see below for rates and their contact information.
