Estevan Depot Profile Friday, November 1st, 2013
  • Posted By: Admin | Comments: No comment

Estevan, aka ‘the Energy City’ is located in southeast Saskatchewan, only 16 kms from the Canada-U.S. Border.  Since its establishment in 1892, Estevan has grown to a whopping 11,054 residents. This might be because they are Canada’s sunniest city year-round, and they have the clearest skies!  The city attributes their name to George Stephan’s Registered Telegraphic Address, Estevan.

Fun fact: Estevan is currently one of the finalists to host the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games.  Good luck!

There are many great things to do within the city, such as watching the Estevan Bruins play hockey or the tour the Rafferty Dam, The Boundary Dam Power Station or the Boundary Dam Mine Site. You could also visit the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum, Souris Valley Museum or the Souris Valley Theatre.

The major industries within the area are coal mining, power generation and oil and gas. Estevan is the birthplace to many great people, including poet Dennis Cooley and curler Arnold Richardson.

If you like murals then you should check out the Estevan SARCAN depot, which boasts the largest recycling mural in Saskatchewan!

The Estevan depot opened its doors to the public in June of 1988.  Since then, they have recycled a total of 148,579,041 beverage containers, 8,760,392 of which were recycled in the last year!

If you are ever in the Energy City, stop on in and recycle your cans, bottles, paint and electronics! Gregg and his staff will be very happy to help you.
