Welcome to the official website for the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers.

The Municipal Office is now open to the public by appointment for building permits, cemetery inquiries, planning information, etc.
We are also accepting payments by cash, cheque or debit at the counter. Please wear a mask when entering the municipal office and use the sanitizer provided at the door. There is a limit of 2 people at one time in the lobby – you may be asked to wait outside until space is available.
We are still here to assist by email at email@example.com or by telephone 705-865-2646.
Fire Permits are available for brush burning – please send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” with your name, home address and property location of where you intend to burn (if different) as well as your phone number. We will email your permit to you. Permits are NOT REQUIRED for campfires. Please follow the Burning Bylaw for rules on when you can burn.
The Tennyson landfill site remains open to the public during regular hours of 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every Saturday. Please ensure all loads are properly secured and covered to prevent debris from blowing out of your vehicle or trailer! We thank you for your patience and your part in physical distancing and adherence to landfill operations.
Curbside household waste and recycling pickup continues. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic GFL is taking necessary steps to optimize operations and ensure continued service during this difficult time, while ensuring the safety of their workers. All garbage bags must be tied. Any untied garbage bags and/or loose garbage in cans will not be picked up. Recycling bins shall not contain loose tissues, wipes, masks or other contaminating product. Please dispose of these in your garbage.
The Township parks and playgrounds are now open but are used at your own risk as they are not sanitized.
Please continue with physical distancing, avoid gatherings of more than 10 people, stay at home and only go out when absolutely necessary. If you have been away, you must stay home for 14 days. Do not go to the grocery store, do not visit your friends and family – STAY HOME.
