General Rules:

The Transfer Station is electronically set up and monitored to provide our Town residents with accessibility day and night. The Town of Balgonie offers on site services at the Transfer Station, but has the added responsibility to ensure that environmental regulations are followed. Municipalities can be fined for burning unapproved items and not properly disposing of items set forth by the Ministry of Environment and the Clean Air Act.

The card holder will be held accountable for all occurrences at the Transfer Station whether they accessed the Transfer Station themselves or provided their card to another individual. Lending the card out to anyone else is not permitted.

Transfer Station cards are initially provided to the “New” home owner at no charge. If a card is lost, it must be reported to the Town Office immediately to be disconnected. The card will be removed from the system and a new card, if requested, will be provided at a cost of $40.00.

The red Loraas Disposal bin is currently delivered on the first (1st) and third (3rd) Friday of every month. There is no specific time as to when the bin will arrive on these days. IF A RED BIN IS UNAVAILABLE, DO NOT LEAVE ITEMS WHERE THE BIN IS NORMALLY PLACED. Individuals who leave items when the bin is unavailable/full and/or individuals who leave items that are not permitted will be fined up to $500.00, and will have their Transfer Station card suspended. Additional fines may be levied by the Ministry for individuals dumping illegally.

Be courteous of others! Although the bin may be available, large items and multiple loads take up the entirety of the bin, making it unusable for other residents. If you have multiple large items, please take them to the Regina Landfill.

Home builders/developers are not permitted to use the red Loraas Disposal bin and are required to rent their own waste container bins.

If you are moving, please return the Transfer Station card to the Town Office.
