We’re Talking Trash
To help us achieve the goal of 70% waste diversion by 2023, the City is redesigning Residential Curbside Collections for single family homes and we need your input. Between February 12 and March 6, 2018, there are a series of public engagement opportunities to look at the priorities, preferences, and barriers that might impact a redesigned curbside waste collection system.
The survey will be open until March 4, 2018 and will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
Pop Up Events
A series of pop up events are being held between February 13 and March 1, 2018. Pop ups are come-and-go style events located at places where residents spend their time.
At each event, you will be invited to participate in a 5-10 minute activity facilitated by City staff to identify your priorities and preferences for the redesign of curbside waste collection.
- February 13: Shaw Centre 4:00 – 7:00pm
- February 15: Alice Turner Library 10:00am – 1:00pm
- February 17: Lawson Heights Mall 11:00am – 2:00pm

- March 1: St. Martin's United Church 12:30 – 3:30pm and 6:30 – 9:00pm
Two community workshops will be held on March 1 at St. Martin’s United Church located at 2617 Clarence Avenue South on the corner of Wilson Crescent and Clarence Avenue South.
Workshops will provide an opportunity for residents with curbside collection to dig deeper into the priorities, preferences, and any barriers that will be considered in a redesigned curbside waste collection system. The 2 hour workshop will include a variety of activities. Registration is preferred, to secure your spot.
- Afternoon Workshop: March 1st, 1 – 3pm at St. Martin’s United Church

Accessible Waste Collection Workshop
A workshop focused on addressing accessibility considerations related to curbside collection will take place on March 6th from 9:30 – 11:30am at the Saskatoon Field House. This workshop is open to stakeholders and organizations that serve or represent older adults and/or other residents who are physically challenged by the task of managing a waste cart.
The goal of this workshop is to better understand the challenges and opportunities with curbside collection from an accessibility lens. This will include a discussion of options for special needs collection. If you are interested in attending, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information.
In April, a group of residents will be randomly selected from those who participated in engagement activities and invited to join stakeholders to discuss engagement findings and recommend approaches. For a chance to participate, please opt-in to sharing your name and email address when you complete the online survey or attend a pop up event or workshop.
