To meet increased demand for spring-time waste, the City of Lloydminster is resuming weekly organics collection on April 2.
The City observes an 80 per cent increase in organic waste during spring, creating the need for a proportionate seasonal waste schedule.
“We are proud of the 11,000 tonnes diverted from the landfill and encourage residents to continue the great effort by using their organics cart,” said Karen Dela Rosa, Senior Manager, Waste Services.
“This schedule adjustment increases efficiency and addresses the large disparity in collection seen between seasons.”
Green bin pick-up dates will remain the same, with the schedule moving back to bi-weekly pick-up in November 2018.
