City offering free cart exchange until Aug. 16

It’s not a “one-size-fits-all” situation.

Is that new blue recycling cart far too big for your needs?

This summer, Lethbridge residents have an opportunity to upscale or downsize their black and blue refuse carts.

From now until Aug. 16, they can contact city hall – at 311 – to request a no-charge change. Or they can go online: 311.lethbridge.ca.

Afterward, the fee will be $100.

Lethbridge is using two cart sizes: the larger 360-litre cart, which holds about five bags of garbage, and the smaller 240L cart rated at three bags. Residents may prefer a large size for one, small for the other.

Officials say replacement carts will be ordered and delivered later this fall. Further information on recycling plans is available at curbside.lethbridge.ca.
