THE NEXT Household Hazardous Waste DAY IS SATURDAY, September 19th
Household hazardous waste requires proper disposal to reduce risks to humans and animals, and prevent pollution of our land, water and air. These materials should not be placed in your garbage or recycling bins, poured down the drain or toilet, or released into the environment.
To ensure household hazardous materials are safely disposed of or recycled, the City coordinates regular Household Hazardous Waste Days for residents to drop-off these materials. A temporary site will be set up at SaskTel Centre parking lot (101 - 3515 Thatcher Avenue) from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., on the following dates in 2015:
2015 Household Hazardous Waste Days:
· September 19
For a complete list of materials accepted at HHW Days, please visit Saskatoon.ca/hazardouswaste. A number of items can also be returned to local retailers for convenient and safe disposal or recycling – for current opportunities in the community, please visit Saskwastereduction.ca.
Please do not bring paint to Household Hazardous Waste Days. Leftover paint and empty paint cans are accepted without charge at all SARCAN recycling depots in Saskatoon. A complete list of paint/paint products accepted at SARCAN locations can be found at www.sarcan.ca/pages/paint.
Do you have opinions about the biggest walkways in Parkridge?
The Parkridge Community Association is partnering with the City of Saskatoon to see if lights are necessary in those walkways. Thanks to all those that came out and/or submitted their thoughts and opinions on the safety of the walkways in Parkridge. Attached in the link below is the PDF of the Safety Audit Summary. Feel free to review it and see what your friends and neighbours found on the safety audit.

An Update on Potential Walkway Improvements
This past March, members of the Parkridge Community Association, many of their neighbours, Councillor Ann Iwanchuk and City of Saskatoon staff, all participated in a Safety Audit of Parkridge’s two longest walkways. Together 28 people set out to record their perceptions of safety and experience what it’s like to walk on an icy-cold, dark evening on the Needham Cres and Neatby Cres., and Needham Cres. and Heise Cres. walkways. Thank you to the residents who participated and shared their concerns and ideas! We heard many suggestions on how to improve a pedestrian’s experience of moving between Parkridge and Blairmore’s schools, homes, leisure centre and businesses.
Most users felt that lights need to be added to both Y-shaped walkways, and that the drainage needs to be improved. And, it’s clear that both lighting and drainage concerns need to be addressed at the same time- digging up the land twice would be expensive and disruptive. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough money available to address both projects this year.
Since April, the City of Saskatoon has been exploring ways to fund the repairs needed for both the lighting and drainage concerns, as one project in 2016. Reports and budget documents have been submitted requesting this. The Parkridge Community Association has also written a letter to support and partner in this initiative, and agreed to donate at least $5,000 towards this project.
The City of Saskatoon will keep you informed as this project progresses.
Thank you for your patience as we work to make it easier to safely move around your community.
