Don’t get swept away!!
With winter trying to make an early entrance, crews are busy with the annual fall sweeping program! As you clear up leaves from your yard this fall we want to remind you that City street sweepers will be in your neighbourhood over the next couple of weeks, removing leaves and debris from roads in heavily treed neighbourhoods. Remember it’s illegal to push leaves onto the street (The Street Use Bylaw). Extra leaves on roadways can cause spring drainage issues. Leaves can be placed loose in your green cart, taken to compost depots, or bagged and put into black carts. Learn more atsaskatoon.ca/leaves or call our 24-hour customer service centre at 306-975-2476.
The sweeping program is expected to start Monday, October 15, and is determined by the weather and the amount of leaves on the ground. Be on the lookout for the bright yellow No Parking signs that let you know your street is about to be swept – reminding you to move your vehicle off the street to avoid a possible ticket and tow. Find your neighbourhood sweeping schedule atsaskatoon.ca/sweeping and monitor City of Saskatoon Service Alerts to hear about unexpected changes that can affect your sweeping day.
City Park days are currently scheduled for October 15, 18 & 23 (East of 3rd Avenue and South of Duchess Street)
**Please note our Monday night yoga class is cancelled tomorrow night (Oct 1).**
Participants are free to attend Tuesday’s restorative yoga class from 8-9pm in place of it if you’d like to make up the class.
We are rescheduling our AGM/Potluck for Saturday Sept 22nd due to weather and room availability! Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. We hope to see you there!
