Know It Before You Throw It!

Know if before you throw it recycling saskatchewan

Saskatchewan's Growth Plan: The Next Decade of Growth 2020-2030 envisions 1.4 million people living in the province by 2030. With this goal in mind, we need your help to manage our solid waste to ensure our landfills are not overwhelmed and the environment remains healthy and resilient.

On average, only half of the material in garbage bins belongs there. The rest can be diverted into other programs, such as recycling and composting.
