FIRE BAN HAS BEEN LIFTED EFFECTIVE JUNE 17, 2019
From Loraas Recycle (who manages the Recycle Program at the Waste Transfer Sites at Waldheim & Mennon)
Based on changes in the market post consumer plastic film (plastic bags, food wrap, cellophane wrapping, bubble wrap, etc) have been virtually eliminated with the new “National Sword” program instituted by China. China was the only viable recycling market for post-consumer plastic film prior to this program coming into effect.
Post-Consumer plastic film was always a difficult commodity to find a mill for – often it was marketed at a net loss. Due to these factors many programs, such as the City Of Regina, never have accepted plastic film. Although eliminating this product is unfortunate – it is a small portion of the recyclable waste stream totaling roughly 1.8%.
The RM of Laird has issued a fire ban effective immediately
- No open fires / fire-pits
- No burning of fields
- No garbage burns
The fire ban is in effect until further notice. (Closed June 18th, 2019(

Due to the ongoing problem of non-payment of invoices for use of the Transfer Station(s). The RM will no longer be invoicing users. It will be operated on a cash only basis. The waste site manager will have a debit card reader on site for your convenience.
Effective March 1, 2017 you will be required to pay with either: debit card, cash or cheque prior to dumping. All rates remain unchanged.
