Waste, recycling programs expanding

By Jensen, Randy on May 25, 2020.


Lethbridge residents will see waste and recycling programs and services slowly start to expand hours and capacity as the City continues into stage one of the Provincial COVID-19 Relaunch Strategy.

Changes include:

– Yard waste sites have added weekend operations moving to seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. On-site restrictions will remain in place to ensure physical distancing;

– The City’s regular free Saturday program will resume Saturday;

– Large Item Service is back to a regular operation, including freon and metal pickup. If you previously booked a LIS pickup that you no longer require, call 311 to cancel; and

– Demolition bin rentals will resume. Call 311 if you require a demo bin rental.

The Waste and Recycling Centre will maintain its current hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The City remains committed to ensuring public health orders are followed at all times and sites remain safe for staff and public. This means visitors could be turned away if lines get too long.
