Garbage and Recycling

The Town of Craik utilizes a curb-side garbage pickup program which is served by Loraas Disposal out of Regina, SK. Each resident receives a Sheaffer cart for their garbage which is picked up each week on Thursday. It is the responsibility of the residents to have their cart wheeled out and curb-side for the trucks to empty the cart. Have you cart out early in the morning on Thursday’s to be sure you don’t miss the truck.

Garbage & Recycling fees are calculated quarterly at a rate of $61.89 / ratepayer, effective April 1/2016.

This includes “2” Sheaffer carts, 1 for garbage and 1 for recycling materials.

Please be careful as to not over-fill the cart as anything that falls out is you own responsibility to clean up. As well, be aware that the sheaffer carts are not designed to hold things like cement, rocks, dirt or any other materials that are dense and heavy. Please dispose of these by other methods.

Large Garbage Item Disposal

There is a large Loraas bin available to residents for their large item disposal. The bin is located in the fenced area near the town maintenance shop but is kept locked for safety reasons. If you’d like to dispose of larger items you’ll have to contact the town office so it can be opened up. There is a fee for this service that is not included in the regular garbage rate that you will have to pay. It varies depending on the size of yous item(s) or per load.

Curb-side Recycling

This program allows residents to easily dispose of their recyclable materials, right at their own home. Each household will have a sheaffer cart that will hold the materials for pick up.
It’s all about keeping our community and our environment clean and safe, for us and the generations to follow!
