Why is my comment not posted?
All comments submitted to scoi.ca are held for moderation. This is done by volunteers who spend a finite amount of time daily reviewing recent comments. Be patient.
If your comment does not appear within a few days, it may be for one of the following reasons:
- someone else made the same comment earlier
- the comment was deemed irrelevant to the issue at hand.
- the comment was deemed to be disrespectful or derisive.
14 days after a post is added to the website, commenting will no longer be possible.

What items can I recycle?

Why was my garbage not picked up?
Garbage collection during the summer months tends to be somewhat slow because of the volume of garbage the collectors must handle. To keep this process moving along so the Band can get to everyone’s trash, please sort your garbage correctly.
See above for a list of recycleable materials.
When is Large Item garbage collection this year?
There is no longer any large item collection by the Band.
To dispose of such items, you have 2 choices:
- Take them to the dump yourself. You will be charged the regular dump fee.
- Call the SFN Works Department at…
