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 at 117-9th Street West in Leader.
