Swan River First Nation Waste Diversion and Recycling Facility

Swan River First Nation is proposing a 1.05 ha Waste Diversion and Recycling Facility to be built in a partially cleared and disturbed area that has been used by the community of Kinuso as an unofficial waste dump for over a decade. The new Facility will provide infrastructure to support waste diversion and recycling of large, bulky, and construction demolition materials in the Swan River First Nation and surrounding region.
