The Town of Battleford Works Department offered an update on its operations at the Sept. 4 town council meeting.
The amount of solid waste has been consistent over the last few years, according to Works Manager Eric Bilanski, and solid waste amounts increases during summer months.
According to a report authored by Bilanski and Chief Administrative Officer John Enns-Wind, inappropriate items are being dumped in solid waste bins, including construction material, mechanical parts such as brake drums and compost material such as grass clippings.
At the end of July Loraas gave the Town the first royalty cheque for the first quarter of operations of the transfer station for more than $8,300.
The report also states recycling use has been inconsistent but is increasing this year compared to last year.
