MOOSE JAW – 233 Moose Jaw residents took advantage of Free Yard Waste Weekend (FYWW) October 23 and 24, 2021.
During “Free Yard Waste Weekend”, the City waives the $10 residential tipping fee at the landfill for residents who want to dispose of organic yard waste such as leaves, grass clippings and pruned branches no larger than one inch in diameter.
City Council has approved a second FYWW, scheduled for Saturday, November 6 and Sunday, November 7, 2021.
Residents may transport their organic yard waste* in trailers behind their light vehicles; however, dual-axle and commercial trucks are not eligible for the fee waiver.
*Yard waste must be transported in transparent garbage bags (orange, blue or clear) for easy inspection.
Those disposing of non-organic household waste, construction materials and other items such as furniture, mattresses and appliances, will be subject to regular landfill fees based on material and weight.
To increase efficiency, the City of Moose Jaw will create a designated yard waste zone, have staff inspect loads at the entrance and direct vehicles to the appropriate area.
The City reminds residents that according to city bylaw No. 5156, Section 23, tarpaulins are required to secure loads and violations will be issued for loads not secured by a tarp. This will keep roads and streets safe and free of debris.
