As our population grows, the amount of waste we generate increases and changes. At the current rate of garbage generation, the City's landfill can accept garbage for an estimated 46 to 54 years.
The amount of material diverted from the landfill can reduce environmental impacts and extend the operating life of the current landfill.
Curbside Waste Composition
We need to understand what’s being hauled to landfills and divert most of that material to recycling, composting, and other waste-diversion streams.
Curbside Waste Generation
The City of Saskatoon produces thousands of tonnes of waste per year, but is initiating steps to become a waste-diversion leader.
