The City of Saskatoon is asking for your opinion on potential changes to the optional Green Cart program to help us better understand the wants, needs and expectations of our residents. A short online survey is open until July 8 to interested residents who currently do not subscribe to the Green Cart program. Visit Saskatoon.ca/GreenCart for the survey link.
Current subscribers to the Green Cart program will be contacted by email or phone to complete a separate survey.
The City of Saskatoon continues to explore innovative waste management practices. Engaging with residents will help to ensure that the viewpoints and values of citizens are included in the City’s decision-making process.
Subscriptions for the optional 2015 Green Cart program were accepted until June 1. This year, approximately 5,700 households subscribed, an increase of 46% over 2014.
If you missed the June 1 deadline for the program, there are other ways to keep yard waste out of your black garbage cart. The City’s compost depots are open for residents to drop off their leaves, grass and non-elm branches and tree trimmings free of charge. For locations and hours, visit Saskatoon.ca/compostdepots. And for home composters, the City offers a $20 rebate to residents who purchase a compost bin from a Saskatoon retailer in 2015. Visit Saskatoon.ca/homecomposting for information.
For information on the optional Green Cart program, the Compost Depots and home composting, including a $20 rebate on the purchase of a new home compost bin, visit Saskatoon.ca/GreenCart.
