Single-Stream Recycling

The R.M. of Happyland No. 231 has recently entered into an agreement with Triways for single-stream recycling in our rural community.  After considering the available options and the associated cost of each option, council has decided to place 1 collection blue bin in Leader at the R.M. Shop.  All R.M. ratepayers are encouraged to drop off their recycling at the R.M. Shop located just north of Leader on Highway 21.
