Waste Management

The Town of Langham does not own a landfill – we manage a transfer station. This means that anything you haul in must be hauled out.

Managing waste is expensive and messy for towns. So in an effort to promote sustainable and healthy living, and to reduce the costs associated with managing and emptying the transfer station, the Town of Langham has several options available for residents and businesses to dispose of unwanted items:

The more residents, businesses and contractors work together to help everyone utilize and promote the following options, the better we can reduce costs and time spent on managing waste. Let’s help support sustainable and responsible growth for Langham.

Garbage (Black Cart) Program

Loraas Disposal is contracted by the Town of Langham to pick up your everyday household and local business waste. Loraas garbage pickup is now biweekly – every other Wednesday. The black cart provided to all residents was chosen for its durability and its ease of use. It holds three times as much as a normal trash can. The cart’s large wheels, makes it easy to maneuver, and it completely eliminates the lifting of heavy cans.

2017 Schedule

Carts need to be placed roadside by 7:00 am on collection day.

Remember! Loraas will not pick up bins that are over-filled or lids that cannot close. Help us keep our streets clean by keeping the bins filled to a reasonable level. No room? Discover our other options below for recycling your everyday waste items as they may have a home other than in your black bin.

  • Recycling (Blue Cart) Program   The Town of Langham strongly supports the protection of our environment and the promotion of sustainable waste reduction programming. Loraas Disposal has been contracted by the Town of Langham to offer curbside recycling for all residents.  We encourage residents to support the program by learning about all the opportunities to reduce the impact on our landfills.  Loraas’ convenient “One Cart - No Sort” residential curbside recycling service is available to residents of Langham. All approved recyclables can now be place together in the 95 gallon Blue Recycle Cart.   Remember! Can’t remember what is recyclable these days? For more information on the types of materials that can be recycled, please stop by the Town Office to obtain the brochure or you may visit http://www.saskatoonrecycles.ca/how-to-recycle.htm
  • Carts need to be placed roadside by 7:00 am on collection day. Every other Wednesday is Recycle Day.  Residents can always view the community calendar to view pick up dates.

Langham Transfer Station

  • The Transfer Station is a collection depot available to the residents of Langham and the RM of Corman Park for garbage that will be transferred to the Northern Landfill. There are specific areas available for old wood items, concrete, white metal, shingles, composting of leaves and grass, and bins for other household garbage. Items must be sorted and disposed of in the appropriate places. 
  • Hazardous wastes including tires, oil, oil cans, or chemicals are NOT allowed into the transfer station. These must be recycled through authorized dealers.
  • Note! The Town of Langham has a zero-tolerance policy for any dumping outside the gates to the transfer station. Gates will be closed if bins are filled and cannot be emptied during regular hours. Residents are asked to return another time. Those caught dumping will be fined. 
  • Remember! Are you throwing away recyclable items? There may be a better home for those unwanted construction materials or electronics. Please help us reduce the amount of times we need to empty the transfer bins and reduce the operating costs of our transfer station – check out the other possible recycling options below.
