The City of Saskatoon is now accepting registrations for the 2020 Green Cart subscription program. Residents are encouraged to participate in this program to divert yard and food waste from the landfill and help in the City’s efforts to achieve 70% waste diversion.

The Green Cart program offers convenient front-street collection of yard and food waste every two weeks from May 4 to November 6, 2020. Current black cart (garbage) and blue cart (recycling) customers are eligible for this optional subscription-based program.

Annual ridership has continued to grow year over year resulting in a 2.5% increase in conventional ridership and 2.2% increase in Access Transit ridership.   

“I am very happy with this result as it shows that we continue to attract more riders to our system and those who are already using transit are using it more often. I attribute the increase to more reliable and frequent routing along our transit corridors,” says Jim McDonald, Director of Saskatoon Transit.

The humidity in Saskatoon this morning is very high at 95%. When it’s below zero, the moisture in the air crystallizes onto the cold pavement and turns to ice. We have 14 sanders spreading straight salt to break up the ice on our priority streets. As the sun rises, it should soften any ice and dry up the driving lanes.
