Guidelines to what goes in the new waste carts can be found on a smart app.
With the roll out of a new waste collection program, the city has provided residents the Fort Sask Waste app to keep everything straight.
Right now, the list for blue and green organics are very firm.
“We do get surcharges at the facilities or refuse our material all together if they are overly contaminated. What you see in the list, what goes where, is very strict,” said waste program supervisor Sadie Miller.
The more people that use the app, the more information the city can provide residents.
“Our ultimate goal is to populate this list with as many materials as possible. If the material isn’t on the list right now we encourage residents to suggest that item to us and then we get a notification and can add it to the inventory on the app,” said Miller.
The new program goes into effect Jun.4 and the app can be downloaded here.
