Green Sweep

Yorkton’s curbside recycling program

The Recycling Bus is a converted school bus, which you can see driving up and down the streets of Yorkton every Monday to Thursday, providing our residents with curbside recycling service.  All recyclable materials are sorted and delivered to the Kinsmen Recycling Centre where the materials are processed and shipped to Regina and/or other brokers.

If you would like to join our curbside program, here’s how:

  • Download a printable information card for proper recycling preparations
  • Go to the retail store of your choice and purchase transparent bags. They may be tinted (most common in blue), but must be transparent. You can use the size that best suits your household needs.
  • Have your bags out on the curb by 8:00 a.m. on your collection day.

Put bags at curb on designated Pick-up Day by 8:00 A.M.
