The City of Saskatoon needs to do more to try to divert organic waste from the landfill through composting, a city committee heard Monday.
The city's environment, utilities and corporate services committee passed a report recommending more education about composting, and consultations on whether food waste should be considered for the city's optional green cart program.
Brian Sawatzky, who appeared on behalf of the city's environmental advisory committee, said the efforts are not sufficient for Saskatoon to catch up to other communities' efforts to divert organic waste from the landfill.
"We are crawling when we need to be running," Sawatzky told the committee.
