For immediate release: February 1, 2015 - 5:03pm

Residents are reminded that in 2014, your garbage and recycling carts will continue to be emptied on the same day of the week as they were emptied in 2013; the scheduled day did not change for this year. Carts must be placed for collection no later than 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day or it may be missed.


A few households have received incorrect schedules due to a printing error on the 2014 garbage and recycling collection calendars, “Let’s Roll”.  If you received the wrong schedule, please accept our apologies.  You may reference or print the correct schedule at, or call 306-975-2486 for assistance and to request a new calendar.  

Residents are also reminded to please leave your garbage and recycling carts out if they’re not emptied on your scheduled collection day.  Weather conditions, mechanical failures and lane conditions can affect collections.

Garbage and Recycling Make-up Collection from Wednesday, January 1
Due to the New Year’s Day statutory holiday, recycling and garbage collection for Wednesday routes, will be collected tomorrow, Saturday, January 4.  If your cart is not emptied on Saturday, please leave it out for collection on Sunday. 

Our cart collection program is designed to reduce the amount of waste that goes to the Landfill and help grow a greener Saskatoon. For more information about recycling and waste handling, visit
