The City of Yorkton owns and operates a Sanitary Landfill.  It is located approximately two miles northeast of the city.  Landfill operations include site access and fee collection, developing waste cells, compacting waste and finally covering the waste to protect it from the environment.  A scale system is currently utilized for most forms of refuse entering the landfill.

A three year rate structure for the sanitary landfill was introduced in 2013.  An explanation for the implemented rates can be found here:  Why Are Landfill Rates Increasing?
