 The Proposed Project

- Upgrades to site access road
- New electrical service from SaskPower
- New local waste collection truck and household collection bins

Solid waste generated during construction will be disposed of at an approved landfill.
Liquid, gaseous and hazardous waste are not expected to be generated during construction. Once commissioned, the facility itself will accept solid waste generated in the community.
