*A City of Saskatoon Website account is required to view/use the interactive map.
Right-of-Way Permit Information
Any use of the City Right-of-Way (ROW), for temporary purposes, requires a permit issued by the Transportation Group of the City of Saskatoon. Some simple examples of situations/events which require a ROW permit, are as follows:
- Construction projects occupying the Right-of-Way – Local Roadways only
- Placement of temporary fencing in the Right-of-Way
- Temporary placement of industrial Disposal Bins and Storage Containers (Sea-cans)
- Temporary “No Parking” signs may be requested** for the purpose of Parking moving vans or other vehicles in restricted parking areas
** To request temporary “no parking” signage, please take out a ROW permit for the desired location and leave a comment in the “comments” section, stating that signage is required (maximum of 24-hour time frames available)
All Applicants must agree to our Right-of-Way Permit Terms & Conditions. If the required conditions are not met or displayed, the City of Saskatoon reserves the right to ticket and/or remove any item/restriction deemed hazardous to the general public. All costs incurred, from said removal, shall be covered solely by the offending parties involved. Traffic Bylaw No. 7200 enables our Bylaw Enforcement Officers to absolve issues, either by removal and/or issuing fines, related to non-compliance of the bylaw.
Waste collections during use of Right-of-Way
It is the permit-holder’s responsibility to identify potential conflicts with solid waste collections. If solid waste collections will be disrupted by any closure/restriction, permit-holders shall be responsible for relocating the waste containers to an accessible location by 7am on the scheduled collection day. If the permit-holder relocates a waste container, they are also responsible for returning the waste container to the specific address it was retrieved from. Temporary labeling of waste containers is the requirement of the permit-holder. The permit-holder must not permanently label containers which may be the property of the City, residents, or businesses. Waste containers shall be returned to their home address, by the permit-holder, by 7pm on collection day.
City of Saskatoon’s solid waste collection schedules:
* For single-family households, refer to the collection calendar at www.saskatoon.ca/collectioncalendar
* For multi-unit properties (e.g. apartment buildings, condominiums), email SolidWasteDispatch@saskatoon.ca to request the collection schedule for specific addresses.

Disposal Bin or Storage Container (Sea-can)
Disposal Bins or Storage Containers are not permitted to be stored on city streets without a valid permit. These items must be placed in front of the applicant’s address, between the property lines. These items are also not permitted for placement on grassed boulevards or medians, as they cause damage to grassed areas or can cause line-of-sight issues.
