Recycling

Wheatland Regional Centre and SARCAN

 

Sarcan RecyclingThe Wheatland Regional Centre (WRC) in Rosetown provides opportunities for twenty-six people with disabilities. These opportunities include an Industry Program, Activity Program, Supportive Independent Living Program, Supportive Apartment Living Program, two group homes and two SARCAN depots in Rosetown and Biggar.

The participants run the SARCAN depot for recycling beverage cans, bottles, glass, and milk jug containers. The depot was the first one in operation in Saskatchewan. In addition, the Wheatland Regional Centre has a centre for recycling cardboard and paper. WRC opened the doors to their new SARCAN building in July 2007. The 36-ft by 73-ft facility includes a new horizontal baler allowing triple the amount of cardboard to be recycled. The new building will allow the former location to be used fully by the WRC.

To add to their environmental services, WRC sports one of the largest composting sites in Saskatchewan with plans to improve the set up. WRC also recycles computers and electronics in conjunction with Rosetown Recycling. All computer parts not used to refurbish other computers can be sent to WRC by request to Rosetown Recycling. For more information on the Wheatland Regional Centre or their recycling program contact them at (306) 882-4257.
