The City administration has been doing work to figure out what sort of impacts a changing climate will have on the City of Saskatoon—and what sort of precautions we can take to minimize these risks.
At October’s meeting of City Council, we moved forward with a decision to establish a city-wide curbside organics collection program.
This is a huge step forward for our city and it will have a significant impact on extending the life of the landfill—an estimated additional 23 years. The current (and optional) green cart program has been successful, but the City’s research has shown that 58% of what ends up in the black bin is organic material that could be diverted.
Five decisions made at City Council that will impact residents of Saskatoon: Waste Diversion | Working with SIIT | Home Flood Protection | Changes to Recycling Plastic Film | Downtown Development
