Composting

Landfills in Canada are quickly filling up and one-third of landfill waste is made up of compostable materials. Diverting this waste from the landfill means that our facilities will last longer and our costs reduced. Grass and leaves are organics that should be and can be composted at no charge.
Yard waste can also be dropped off, free of charge, at Lorette Solid Waste Management Facility. Credit card or debit card forms of payment only accepted at the facilities. Branches are also accepted at the facilities and are chipped at no charge.

Lorette Residents:
The R.M. of Taché and the Local Urban District Committee for Lorette are pleased to introduce the newly established “Curbside pick-up program” and “Depot Site” for grass clippings and leaves only.

Curbside pick-up will be available on Tuesdays for a three-week period from May 5th, 2020 until May 26th, 2020 inclusively. Grass clippings and leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper yard waste bags at the curbside on Tuesdays by 7:00 a.m.
This pick-up service will also be available for a three-week period in the fall from September 15th to 29th, 2020 (again on Tuesdays). Please place your grass and leaves separate from your garbage and recycling bags.  

A convenient yard waste depot site will also be available beginning May 5th, 2020. Grass clippings and leaves can be dropped off at the depot site located on the west side of the Lorette Firehall at 1393 Dawson Road in Lorette, MB. Grass clippings and leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper yard waste bags. The yard waste depot site will be available until the end of September, during the hours of operation referenced below.

Landmark Residents:
The R.M. of Taché and the Local Urban District Committee for Landmark are pleased to introduce the newly established drop off site for grass clippings and leaves. No plastic bags of any type, branches or loose grass allowed.  
Beginning May 4th, 2020 residents of Landmark unable to transport their grass clippings and leaves to the solid waste management facilities are encouraged to drop these materials off at the new site located at the Landmark Arena on Robert Koop Rd. The site is open 24 hours per day 7 days per week and until September 30, 2020.
Grass clippings and leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper yard waste bags and placed at the site.

As this is a pilot project, other materials and/or garbage deposited at the site will jeopardize this service. If you observe someone depositing anything other than grass clippings or leaves, please report the incident to the Municipal Office.
