Saskatoon city council voted Monday to stop publishing a paper calendar showing residents when garbage will be picked up on their street.
The move is expected to save the city $85,000 a year on printing and mailing costs.
Council heard concerns that some residents without internet access might have trouble with the change.
Nonetheless, councillors voted 9-2 in favour of axing the calendars, with the conditions that the information remain available online, be posted at city facilities and people can have copies printed at recreation centres and libraries.
People are also able to sign up for reminders on their smartphones.
The 2018 calendars were paid for in the last city budget cycle, so 2019 will be the first year residents won’t get one.
Council also voted to scrap the extra garbage collection day the city has previously run in between Christmas and New Year’s Day. That move is meant to save the city $25,000.
