On September 12, 2016, Prince Albert Conservation Officers received information regarding a large number of tires that were discarded on private land two and a half miles west on Tower Lake Road, southwest of Prince Albert.

Officers investigated the scene and located approximately 200 tires, which they believe were dumped between July and mid-August of 2016.

Dumping of scrap tires and other forms of littering threaten the stability of Saskatchewan’s natural resources and is an offence under the Environmental Management and Protection Act. In addition, trespassing on private land may lead to civil action being taken by the land owner.

If you have any information, call the toll-free Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment Turn In Poachers line 1-800-667-7561 or #5555 from a Sasktel cellphone (phone calls only, no text messages). Violations may also be reported online at www.saskatchewan.ca/tip. You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to a conviction.
