March 5, 2020 - 9:00am

The City is saddened to learn about a fatal incident this morning (Wednesday, March 4) involving a pedestrian and a private contractor recycling collection truck. Our thoughts are certainly with this person’s friends and family at this difficult time. The collection work was being done by a private contractor for a non-City organization’s recycling contract. City workers or vehicles were not involved. Of course and if required, the City would cooperate with any police investigation.

Again, we offer our deepest condolences to everyone touched by this sad event.

Overnight snow and wind caused snow drifting on some Saskatoon roads. City crews and contractor graders are focused on clearing driving lanes along Circle Drive and major roads around the city today. Winter driving conditions exist.
