Making the most out of Humboldt's waste and recycling programs is just one of the ways we can all keep our community clean.

Residential Garbage and Recycling Program

Through the Regional Authority of Carlton Trail (REACT), the City of Humboldt provides a cart-based waste and recycling collection, transportation and disposal program for residents.

This program supports Our Humboldt's Green and Sustainable values as well as the Government of Saskatchewan's shift to promote environmental stewardship and increased personal waste management responsibility.

All residential properties of three units or less (e.g. single-family homes, townhouses, duplexes, triplexes, small condominiums, etc.) are issued one garbage cart and one recycling cart for residential, curbside collection.  

Apartments and condominiums typically have collection services from larger, stationary bins. Check with your landlord or property association to ensure you understand how garbage and recycling is managed in your building. 

Should you have questions about collection services, please contact REACT at (306) 682-1955 with your name and civic address.

Should you have questions about garbage and recycling billing services, please contact the City at (306) 682-2525 with your name and civic address.

The Waste and Recycling Collection Bylaw, which governs the provision of these services in the community, is available on the Bylaws page, under Community Interest & Safety.
