Hazardous Waste can be considered any waste that has a warning symbol for Flammable, Explosive, Poisonous or Corrosive. Once a year the City holds a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day. This program provides for proper environmentally safe disposal of hazardous wastes.
Tarped Loads City Bylaw #5156, Section 23, requires that all loads must be tarped and secured. The City of Moose Jaw enforces Bylaw #5156, which states that all vehicles transporting wastes or debris must be covered or securely fastened to prevent any material from escaping the vehicle. The City of Moose Jaw Police Service, as well as the Landfill Personnel, can issue violations for vehicles found to be traveling with unsecured loads. Help keep our community safe and clean by making sure that your load is secured!

For Public Works Week in May 2020, an episode of the City's Notorious Jawcast was produced, with Darrin Stephanson, Director of Public Works & Utilities, describing our Landfill operations. We also played a game of "Solid or Waste" where Darrin dispelled some misinformation about how waste and recyling is handled. Here is the episode.
