MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw reminds residents that bi-weekly waste collection returns in October.

Effective Friday, October 1, waste collection in each zone will occur every two weeks as per the 2021 Collection schedule, available at

Bi-weekly waste collection will be in effect October 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022.

Further, the City has designated Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24 as “Free Yard Waste Weekend”.

During “Yard Waste Weekend”, the City will waive 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.

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.

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.
