MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw is pleased to announce that Free Yard Waste Weekend returns Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29, 2023.

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.

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.

The Sanitary Landfill hours are Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The Landfill is located at 1802 Caribou St. E.

Finally, the City of Moose Jaw reminds residents that bi-weekly waste collection resumes November 1, 2023, as per the schedule that was issued at the start fo the calendar year. Click here to see the waste/recycling collection calendar.
