- Recycling - Community Programs
The Town of Swan Hills is a northern community with a population of 1,301. Although small, the community strives to make a difference and minimize their environmental footprint.
Swan Hills collects household garbage but also encourages residents to bring their electronics, tires, metal, paint cans, appliances to the Transfer Station / Landfill Site for recycling. Recycling of cardboard, paper, plastics, tin, and glass is also supported. In-house, they are involved in the collection of batteries and print cartridges from individuals which are then taken to the Community Toxic Round-Up, promoted by the Swan Hills Treatment Centre.
