MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw has designated May 22-24 as “Free Yard Waste Weekend”.

The City traditionally allows residents to dispose of organic yard waste free of charge during one weekend in Spring and another in Autumn.

During the Victoria Day weekend (May 22-24) the City will waive the $10 tipping fee for leaves, grass clipping and branches no larger than one inch in diameter. The City requests that material be contained in clear or orange bags for easy inspection.

Residents may transport their organic yard waste in trailers behind 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 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.

The Landfill is open 7:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday (including all statutory holidays except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day), and 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. on Sundays.
