Q: I see a $10 recycling fee on my City Water Bill. Where does that money go?

A:

  • If you pay a City of Yorkton water bill, you may notice that there is a $10 recycling levy on your residential water bill. Since billing occurs every 2 months, the total fee is $5 per month.
  • Of that $5 fee, $3 goes to the Saskatchewan Abilities Council for processing the recyclable material collected, and $2 goes to helping PHEP function on a daily basis.
  • If you break the $2 fee down, it works out to 50¢ per recycling pick up. (See below to find out what other Cities pay)
