In some ways the global Covid-19 pandemic has made our jobs and home life more complicated and stressful just as it has simplified and strengthened other aspects of our lives. Engaging with your Plant Health Officer (PHO) need not be stressful or worrying. We are working to adapt to the needs of RM and First Nation Band (FNB) Councils, Weed Inspectors, Pest Control Officers, Land Managers, and other stakeholders. While we may need to opt out of meeting with you in person at Council meetings, we are still available to meet with staff and Councils via video conferencing and/or conference calls. Feel free to contact your PHO to make arrangements that work for everyone. Staying engaged with you is still a priority for us.PHO-Quarterly-Fall-2020
The Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association and its affiliates will be promoting septic awareness during the week of September 14 to 18. The purpose of this initiative is to promote proper operation and maintenance of onsite wastewater systems.
Properly designed and maintained wastewater treatment systems effectively reduce or eliminate most human health or environmental threats posed by pollutants in household wastewater. However, they require regular maintenance or they can fail. Failing systems are expensive to repair or replace, and poor maintenance is often the culprit. Systems need to be monitored to ensure that they work properly throughout their service lives.SK-Septic-Awareness-1

Loraas Environmental Services Ltd. (“Loraas”) has developed safe waste disposal guidelines for our residential and business customers in the North Battleford and Kindersley areas due to the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) beginning March 23, 2020 until further notice.
Loraas wishes to emphasize that these guidelines are being put in place as a precautionary measure to protect the health and safety of collectors who handle thousands of receptacles a week and physically sort recyclable materials. Proper disposal of potentially contaminated items is also a good safeguard to have in place to protect the general public.
Guidelines for safe waste disposal during global COVID-19 pandemic include:
- If you are sick, please place ANY item that have come into contact with your mouth, nose, eyes, or hands in a bag and into the garbage – even items that you normally place into your Blue Cart or Bin (i.e.
water/beverage bottles, yogurt containers, milk/juice cartons, etc.)
- Bag all garbage securely and place it into your black/waste cart. Do not place garbage loosely in your carts.
- Recyclable items should be placed loosely into your blue/recycling cart; excluding potentially contaminated recyclables mentioned above. Ensure recyclables are cleaned and not food-soiled.
- Ensure accessible cart placement (4ft between carts or obstacles) to avoid manual handling by our collectors.
- Cart lids must be fully closed to prevent windblown items. Items placed outside of the carts will not be collected.
- Used tissues and disposable clean products (i.e. wipes), should be placed into a bag then into your black/garbage cart only.
- Cleaning products and aerosols with warning labels should not be placed into your recycling cart. Please hold onto these items and use a Household Hazard Collection Day program if available in your community.
For excess garbage, recycling, or organic waste, The Loraas Transfer Station in Battleford, SK will remain open to the public. For details and hours visit:
