The City of Regina says it will charge homeowners $91.25 a year for its upcoming curbside recycling service.
That amount, equal to $7.60 a month, is to be considered by city council in committee form on Wednesday.
Paper, plastic, glass and tin cans are among the items people will be able to put into their individual recycling carts, starting next July.
The city assumes it will have 63,500 carts being used.
City officials hope to see 40 per cent less discarded material ending up in the landfill.
While garbage collection is paid for out of general tax revenues, recycling will be paid for by the user.
The city plans to launch the new recycling fee on July 1, 2013. The fee is mandatory and will be added to people's utility bills.
Meanwhile, the City of Saskatoon is preparing to roll out its own household recycling program next January.
According to the city's Frequently Asked Questions page, it will charge homeowners $3.83 a month, plus a 50 cent per month administration fee.
