Minitonas and Bowsman are pleased to offer recycling to everyone within town limits!
Minitonas and Bowsman both offer recycling through the use of a blue bin. If you're within town limits and you don't have a bin, please contact the office at (204)-525-4461. If you're considered RM, OSS unfortunately can't pick up your recycling. If you'd still like to drop off your recycling somewhere though, we do have large OSS dumpsters for recycling just inside the gates at the Nuisance Grounds.
*Bowsman Recycling day is every second Thursday*
*Minitonas Recycling day is every second Friday*
Please refer to the information below supplied by both OSS and Multi Material Stewardship Manitoba (MMSM) if you're unsure as to which items are acceptable and which ones are not. Please note that OSS is unfortunately not able to take styrofoam. If you have any of the egg cartons made of styrofoam, The Co-op Grocery Store in Swan River has a place where they can be dropped off.
Visit the Recyclepedia if you're not sure whether an item can be recycled or not. They offer a service where you can search for an item and they'll tell you how to best deal with it.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Municipal Office at 204-525-4461, Mon-Fri (8:30-12:00, 1:00-4:30).
Thank you very much for helping us out in an effort to make the Swan Valley a greener place!
