Transfer station chosen to extend SFX waste disposal grounds’ use

  • Print

A waste transfer station, to be constructed by Nov. 1, will help end the RM of St. Francois Xavier’s waste disposal dilemma.

The RM’s council awarded the construction contract to B-Sharp Excavating, authorizing the work to be done at a cost not to exceed $61,000.

St. Francois Xavier CAO Robert Poirier said local residents will still have a three-bag limit for household garbage when they haul it to the municipal dump, but instead of throwing their bags into a pit, they will put them into metal bins which can be emptied.

The annual operating cost for the transfer station is expected to be about $37,000. This is in addition to the municipal dump’s $36,000 annual operational cost.

Council chose the transfer station over two other options to extend the operating life of the dump.

One of the options was to expand the existing pit for household garbage at a cost of at least $150,000 and the other was to bring in curbside pickup at an annual cost of about $185 per household.

Private companies also offer curbside pickup within the municipality.
