Ninety-five per cent of the streets in Preeceville are paved. They are swept in summer and snow is removed in winter.
Priority One will be emergency routes and our main arterial roads namely access to the hospital, care homes and school. These streets and Main Street downtown are cleared before the start of morning traffic. Next come streets with low traffic and sidewalks based on that snowfall’s challenges relating to staffing and equipment drivers.
Our primary responsibility is to keep roads passable so that vehicles can drive with safety. The next morning the remaining streets are divided into different priorities again on the basis of traffic volumes, grade of hills, parking around the school, access to businesses, and then low-volume streets. By the end of the third day after an average snowfall all streets and alleys should be clear.
Alleys may have a secondary safety priority for garage pickup staff Monday mornings. After a snowfall help us clean efficiently and fast by not parking on the street until it is done.
Roads and sidewalks that are very icy should be reported to the Town online or by calling 306-547-2810.
Solid waste is collected from residences weekly on Mondays. Commercial collection is weekly on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the summer months and on Mondays and Fridays in the winter months. Waste is disposed in a sanitary landfill.

Effective April 15, 2018 the Parkland Regional Landfill's hours have been set as follows:
The Parkland Regional Landfill provides a waste management solution for northeastern Saskatchewan, while at the same time ensuring the safety of its groundwater supply.

The town reservoir has a capacity of 400,000 gallons, and peak consumption is 167,000 gallons per day. The water pressure is 32 p.s.i. The water is treated with chlorine at the well site, pumped to town and goes through the filtration system prior to being distributed.
The water rate is $122.00 quarterly for 6000 gallons, $5.36 per 1000 gallons over the 6000.
The two-compartment lagoon system serves all residents.
