In 2019, Lethbridge became one of the last cities in Canada to implement curbside recycling. This allowed us to learn from other municipalities when designing our program, but it was also a reminder that there's a lot more we can be doing to reduce waste. Implementing curbside recycling was a big step forward in helping Lethbridge to become a more sustainable city.
What's in it for me?
We all know recycling is important but people are busy and making it easy is also important. Providing curbside recycling is a proven way to increase recycling participation in communities.
- Accessible to everyone
- Less recycling piling up in your house and garage
- Less time spent sorting
- Fewer trips to the recycling stations
Curbside recycling is an important piece of the City's overall plan for reducing and managing waste. To learn more visit our Big Picture page.
