Saskatchewan Environmental Code Transfer Station Chapter

The Ministry of Environment is seeking feedback on a proposed new transfer station chapter for inclusion in the Saskatchewan Environmental Code.

The transfer station code will reduce the time municipalities spend on permitting and reporting, while providing flexibility for meeting compliance obligations. The code chapter will allow for online registration and reduce the requirement to submit some documentation for review, such as operations plans and emergency response plans.
