Communications DepartmentPaper bags required for yard waste collection starting July 1

<p style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;">Beginning July 1, 2017, only compostable yard waste paper bags and securely tied bundles of branches will be accepted for yard waste collection.&nbsp;<strong>Plastic bags will no longer be collected.</strong></p>
<p >&ldquo;Moving to paper bags will help the City eliminate the expenses related to the debagging process used when yard waste is collected in plastic bags,&rdquo; said Mohammad Kraishan, Operations Manager for the City. &ldquo;As the City strives to enhance more responsible environmental practices, collecting yard waste in paper bags also makes the program environmentally friendly.&rdquo;</p>
<p>Residents can visit the City&rsquo;s website at&nbsp;<a href="http://citypa.ca/yardwaste">http://citypa.ca/yardwaste</a>&nbsp;for more information, which includes a Frequently Asked Questions and Answers section.</p>
<p>For information on the Yard Waste Program and new changes contact the Public Works Department at (306) 953-4900 with any questions or concerns.&nbsp;</p>

Communications DepartmentStreet Sweeping operations begins May 1

<p><span>City crews have started street sweeping this week with some equipment out on 2<sup>nd</sup> Avenue West and the Downtown area. Full street sweeping operations began today and are starting on arterial streets. </span></p>
<p><span>Street sweeping is conducted each year to clean City streets by removing sand and debris left behind from the winter. This work helps to prevent the material from going into the City&rsquo;s storm sewer system, reduces dust and makes streets safer for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. </span></p>
<p><span>The City would like to remind motorists to keep a safe distance from street sweeping equipment, as visibility will be reduced by dust and flying debris.</span></p>
<p><span>Further information on the frequency and order of residential street sweeping will be released when available.&nbsp; </span></p>
