Transfer Station Scannable Access Card System 

On July 1, 2021, The Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet moved away from the Transfer Station punch card system to a NEW scannable Transfer Station access card system. After receiving feedback from residents, modifications were made to the system and those modifications came into effect on Jan. 1, 2022.

Both Transfer Station #520 and #214 make use of the existing access cards. Residential and trailer site cards come with annual bag limits for the disposal of waste.

Bag Limits

Bag limits are be determined by Council. They are  allocated on Jan. 1 and  expire on Dec. 31 of the same year. Unused bags do not carry over to the following year. Bag limits hold no monetary value. 

Residential Card Holders 

The bag limit for residential card holders is set at 104 for 2022.  

Residential card holders who use up their bag allocation will pay fees as per the Transfer Station Fee Schedule.

Fees are determined by Council resolution and subject to change.

Commercial Card Holders 

Commercial card holders do not have a bag limit and will pay fees as per the Transfer Station Fee Schedule.

Agricultural Card Holders

Agricultural card holders do not have a bag limit and will pay fees as per the Transfer Station Fee Schedule.

Trailer Sites

The bag limit for a trailer park lot occupant is set at 52 for 2022.

Trailer park lot occupants who use up their bag allocation will pay as a resident as per the Transfer Station Fee Schedule.

Non-Residents 

As the RM of Lac du Bonnet waste disposal sites are Transfer Stations, not landfills, the following applies:

Non-residents can continue to use the Transfer Stations and will pay as per the Transfer Station Fee Schedule.

Non-residents may not deposit household furniture or mattresses.

Non-residents may not bring pick-up truckloads of garbage bags or miscellaneous loose loads.

Replacement or Supplementary Cards

Replacement or supplementary cards may be purchased due to misplacement, theft, title transfer, or convenience. Replacement or supplementary cards cost $20 each and there is no limit to the number of supplemental cards one can purchase, but all supplementary cards will be linked to the bag limits of the resident or business owners’ roll number. 

The RM reserves the right to cancel cards due to abuse or change of ownership as necessary.

A resident depositing waste must present their access card to the Transfer Station attendant. Photocopies or scanned images of the access card will not be accepted; Transfer Station attendants have the authority to request identification to confirm a resident’s identity. 

Weighed Loads and Acceptable and Unacceptable Items 

All weighed loads are subject to a $20 minimum fee. The Transfer Station does not accept septic tanks, water tanks, watercrafts, hot tubs, and campers.

An itemized list of accepted items can be found here. (Coming soon.)

The Transfer Station has the right to refuse materials based on burning bans and space limitations.
