Notice to Residents
Scale Implementation at Sanitary Landfill

The City of Yorkton scale system at the Sanitary Landfill will soon be operational.  Vehicles entering the landfill will be weighed and charged based on the weight of refuse brought in for disposal with payment required prior to departure.  Fill material that may be accepted, at the City’s discretion, will also require fees to cover the cost of stockpiling this material. 

Efforts should be made to separate and properly dispose of recyclable refuse whenever possible.  Concrete or asphalt will continue to be accepted at the City Public Works Yard at 85 York Road East.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Environmental Services Department at 786-1774
