Waste Reduction: Drop-Off Days, Special Events, Education and Resources
Send waste to a better place! Learn all about our special events such as the Household Hazardous Waste Day, Leaf and Yard Waste Depots and more! We also have information about white metal goods recycling, composting and how to sign up for presentations and workshops.
Household Hazardous Waste
Household hazardous waste are items that can be corrosive, flammable or poisonous. Knowing which products are hazardous can help you protect yourself, your family, staff and the environment. Please do not dispose of household hazardous waste in your garbage or by pouring items down the drain or stormwater sewers as it will harm the environment.
Paint and Electronics
SARCAN Recycling collects unused paint and electronics year-round. If you have unused or unwanted paint and end-of-life electronics, take them to your nearest SARCAN depot. SARCAN also accepts empty paint cans. Read more information about SARCAN’s recycling programs.
2016 Household Hazardous Waste Days
Dates and Times
The 2016 Household Hazardous Waste Days are now complete. More details to be announced in 2017.
The City offers Household Hazardous Waste Day in partnership with Saskatchewan Scrap Tire Corporation, Habitat for Humanity Re-Store, Saskatchewan Electronics Products Recycling Association, ReGeneration and Saskbattery.
Fall 2016 Leaf and Yard Waste Depots
Instead of putting your leaves, plants, pumpkins and twigs in the garbage, bring them to the City’s Leaf and Yard Waste Depot where it will be turned into nutrient-rich compost. Gardeners, farmers, and landscapers mix this compost into existing soil to enrich the earth and stimulate healthy plant growth.
Dates and Times
Depots are now closed for the season. More details to be announced in 2017.
Treecycle – Christmas Tree Recycling
After the holidays, drop off your natural Christmas tree at any of our Treecycle depots. Be sure your tree has no decorations and is not in a disposal bag. Trees will be turned into nutrient-rich compost.
Treecycle Depots will be open seven days a week, from December 28 to January 31. City staff will be on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following three Saturdays: December 31, January 7 and 14 to assist residents with their trees.
