News Minden Hills Township and M.D.S. to remove sandbags Saturday SHARE ON: Kenny Trenton, contributor, Friday, Jun. 2nd, 2017 Photo: Supplied by Kenny Trenton The Township of Minden Hills will continue removing sandbags from properties impacted by the flood. The township has tried to reach out to call affected property owners, but you can call the municipal office if you want the sandbags removed at 705-286-1260, extension 211. The Mennonite Disaster Services will join road department to assist in the cleanup starting at 8:30. Anyone who wants to bring their sandbags to the Scotchline landfill can drop them off there at no cost. High water levels in the Gull River lead to a state of emergency being declared last month, but that has since been lifted.
