All small loads (1 tonne or less) of other construction waste are accepted at the Treherne and Rathwell Transfer Stations, if sorted, excluding shingles. All shingles and large loads of construction waste must be shipped directly to the RM of Thompson’s Regional Land Fill at the expense of the building owner.
