The Let's Roll! recycling trailer teaches participants what can and can't be recycled, promotes composting at home or with a green cart, and helps connect residents with safe disposal options for hazardous waste like batteries and lightbulbs. Providing hands-on education on waste and recycling will help reduce waste and grow a greener Saskatoon.

The Let's Roll! recycling trailer is managed and staffed by Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council (SWRC) and is a partnership between the City, Loraas Recycle, Cosmopolitan Industries, and the SWRC to encourage recycling and waste reduction.

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.
