Compost Depots open April 11, 2016

The City of Saskatoon’s two compost depots will be opening for the season on April 11 (weather permitting). Residents of Saskatoon are encouraged to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill by bringing their leaves and grass to one of the depots for composting.

West – Highway 7 Compost Depot, located at the junction of Highway 7 and 11th Street West. Open daily 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. *Vehicles will not be admitted after 5:50 p.m.

The depots are free for residents of Saskatoon. Commercial haulers are required to purchase and display a seasonal permit to access the compost depots. The registration fee for 2016 is $200 per business for the first vehicle and $50 for each additional vehicle. Purchase commercial permits at saskatoonenvirostore.ca.

Food waste will not be accepted for drop off at the compost depots; however, residents may subscribe for a Green Cart for convenient front-street collection of food and yard waste every two weeks.

City-Wide Curbside Swap

September 12, 2015 is city-wide Curbside Swap day

Got free, useable stuff?
Want free, usable stuff?
Swap it!

At a Curbside Swap, unwanted items in good condition are placed on the curb and marked as free, for anyone to pick up. Giving these items a new home keeps them out of our landfill and reduces our community’s environmental footprint.

Join the city-wide Curbside Swap day on Saturday, September 12, by placing items on your curb that you want to give away and/or by searching for free treasures that others set-out. Make sure whatever you set-out or pick-up is clearly marked as “FREE.” The swap ends by 6:00 p.m., when it’s time to return your unclaimed items to your home along with your newfound treasures.

– Clearly mark all items that you wish to swap as “FREE” and remove any items you wish to keep from your lawn and curb.
– Do not block roads/sidewalks with items.
– Obey all traffic laws and watch for children.
– Do not drive/walk on other people’s lawns.
– Do not discard items on someone else’s lawn/curb.
