This holiday season the City of Yorkton is encouraging residents to practice proper waste disposal. Many items that end up in our landfill during the holiday season can actually be recycled, reducing the amount of unnecessary waste that goes into the landfill each year.

  •  Wrapping Paper: If you can rip it, you can recycle it. No need to remove tape and staples, but it helps if you do.
  • 100% cardboard gift boxes, gift cards and paper packaging....
