It’s time to “Talk Trash” with the City of Moose Jaw.
The Environmental Services branch of the City of Moose Jaw Public Works & Utilities department is responsible for managing the collection and disposal of solid waste within the City and administers the blue bin recycling program (both residential and bulk bins). The landscape of waste and recycling collection and disposal has changed dramatically in the past decade due to an ongoing shift in practices aimed at responsible environmental stewardship. The City of Moose Jaw is committed to continuing and enhancing our collection practices and we are asking for your help to ensure a practical, responsible program. In a 2018 survey commissioned by the City of Moose Jaw, a large majority of residents responded that it was “Very Important” for the City’s Waste Management Plan to focus on:
- Preventing organics and recyclables from going to the landfill.
- Decreasing how much garbage is sent to the landfill.
- Reducing the environmental impact through waste management practices.
Garbage/Waste is collected on a bi-weekly schedule from November 1st to - May 31st, with weekly waste collection in place for the months of June, July, August, September, and October. Recycling is collected on a bi-weekly schedule year-round. Waste and recycling are collected on separate days according to your collection zone. To view the collection schedule, click here.
If your garbage or recycling pick up was missed, please submit a Request For Service (RFS) within 24 hours of your scheduled collection day on the City of Moose Jaw app or click here https://moosejaw.ca/report-an-issue/
