About Our Facility

In the early 1990's, waste disposal regulations were changing and many traditional 'garbage dumps’ were no longer able to meet the requirements for a modern day landfill cell. With these changes in mind, through a joint effort of the Rural Municipalities of Whitemouth and Reynolds, the Whitemouth - Reynolds Waste Management Facility partnership was formed in 1993.

Originally, the facility was to have a recycling depot and landfill. The facility was designed to meet these new regulatory standards. Long before a shovel was put in the ground a new idea was born. It was decided then to step away as much as possible from our dependency on simply throwing everything away. The Facility became a member of some of the Stewardship programs that were available then. The present day Waste Management Facility begin to take shape.    

In 1996, the northern region of the Whiteshell Provincial Park approached the committee to join as a partner with the facility, as their landfills were no longer expectable. In November of 1997, an agreement was reached and signed by the three parties, creating the Whitemouth - Reynolds - North Whiteshell Waste Management Facility partnership. On October 1, 1998 the three landfills that serviced the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth were closed and all wet and dry waste from the Municipality was brought to the facility. On June 1, 1999 the Rural Municipality of Reynolds closed its seven landfills as did the North Whiteshell, shutting down half of their sites. By September 30, 1999 all fourteen landfill sites that used to service the three districts where shut down and no longer in use.

Today the Facility is a member of several more Stewardship Programs. These programs range from the collection and recycling of everyday household and personal electronics to household hazardous waste. Through the efforts of these programs and the diligence of the populations of Whitemouth, Reynolds and the North Whiteshell provincial Park, we have been able to divert thousands of tonnes of waste away from our landfill.
