From 7 to 5: Waste and Recycling Pick-Up  January 11, 2018

A new year sometimes means change. For the City’s waste and recycling collection, the change comes with Loraas Environmental Services Ltd. picking up the black garbage bins now, instead of K&B Construction.

While this may result in a change of the pick-up route, the pick-up time has not changed: The trucks still come between 7am and 5pm to empty the black or blue bins. However, if residents are used to having their bins picked up at 9am, this may have changed now with the new contractor and their bins will get picked up earlier or later than what they were used to.

This is a friendly reminder to put the bin out on the street before 7am to make sure it doesn’t get missed.

We also take this opportunity to remind North Battleford residents of the services that we have available to make sure their bins always get picked up:

  1. We recommend downloading the North Battleford Waste and Recycling App onto your phone. The App sends a reminder the night before pick-up. OR
  2. Go to

o   Type your address into the little box in the “Collection Schedules and Reminders”

o   You will now see the Calendar for your address

o   You can click on “Get a Reminder” and select the channels you would want to be reminded through (by phone, text message, email, twitter etc.).

o   Here, you can also print a 12-months calendar. This calendar also shows when the pick-up day changes due to Statutory Holidays.

All residents who have signed up for the reminders also receive information on other services like Household Hazardous Waste Days, compost/leave pick-up in the fall and ad hoc changes and notifications.

Commercial Structure Fire January 11, 2018

The North Battleford Fire Department responded to a commercial structure fire shortly at 1411 hours Wednesday afternoon January 10, 2018, West of Territorial Drive. Two Engines, a rehabilitation bus, tanker, ½ ton utility truck and Two Chiefs units with 15 fire fighters, full time and paid on call, arrived on scene to a fully involved structure fire. Crews arrived and the fire was quickly brought under control, however the natural gas main was flaring and could not be shut off from the meter and the commercial structure contained a vehicle and cylinders posing a high risk to firefighters. The gas main was allowed to flare until it was finally isolated by SaskEnergy approximately 3 hours into the incident. The incident was quickly brought under control by crews working in arduous conditions of -36 degrees Celsius with the wind chill. 

RCMP, EMS, SaskPower and SaskEnergy attended the incident and helped to make the scene safe.

There were no civilian or fire fighter injuries. The origin of fire is under investigation.  Estimated damage is approximately $150,000.

Fire Chief Trevor Brice commented that he was proud of his crews who worked tirelessly in the adverse conditions for a period extending over six hours on scene.
