Next Monday, the three City of Lethbridge yard waste sites will close for the season. To date, the sites have collected a total of 1.48 million kilograms of yard waste which was diverted from the landfill, the City said in a news release.
The weight of this yard waste is equivalent to 914 mid-sized cars! Grass, leaves and garden waste collected at yard waste sites is composted at the Waste & Recycling Centre and used in city parks and for ground remediation at the landfill.
Since spring, the yard waste sites have been open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations:
¥ Bridge Drive West Recycling StationÊ- at the top of Bridge Drive West hill, right before the junction of Bridge Drive West and University Drive.
¥ Stafford Drive North Recycling StationÊ- located at the junction of Stafford Drive North and Scenic Drive North.
¥ South Side Recycling StationÊ-Êlocated on 28 Avenue South between the Lethbridge Soccer Complex and Lethbridge Judo Club.
ÊAfter the yard wastes sites close, residents can take this material to the Waste & Recycling Centre (landfill) for composting between Dec. 1 and March 31, with no disposal fees charged on Saturdays. The City’s recycling stations which collect cardboard, glass, tin cans and plastic remain open year round.
