Recycling

Thank you for your understanding on February 8th about the decision to not pick up recycling. Curbside Recyclers drive out of Lethbridge and had made the decision to not come out due to poor road conditions and weather reports. Their safety is important and we respect their decisions.
They will be picking up recycling this Saturday February 15th, 2020. After this, they will return to their regular schedule of every 2nd and 4h Saturday of the month.
Thank you again for your patience and again we apologize for the inconvenience.
