Transfer Station Passes (punch cards) may be purchased for the cost of $26.00 equal to one (1) Punch Card from the Municipal Office via cash, debit or cheque or at the #520 Transfer Station via debit or credit card. Partial cards are not available. The weigh scale operator or attendant requires the following information to generate a receipt: date, name, tax roll, punch card number, and signature. Punch cards are to be used for household garbage only. 

All transactions at the #520 Transfer Station must be by debit or credit card. Cash is not accepted at the transfer station.

Transfer Station Scannable Access Card System 

On July 1, 2021, The Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet moved away from the Transfer Station punch card system to a NEW scannable Transfer Station access card system.

Under the new system, residents and businesses were issued a card they will scan prior to entering the Transfer Station.
