City discouraging illegal dumping ahead of yard waste sites opening

- Advertisement -

LETHBRIDGE, AB – Even though the weather is getting warmer and yard clean ups have begun, the City of Lethbridge is asking you to hold on to your yard waste for just a little while longer.

The three Yard Waste Sites around the city don’t open until April 1. However, some illegal dumping has been noticed at the gates of those sites over the past week.

Since the Yard Waste Sites are currently unattended, bags are spilling all over the place and that litter is being collected as trash, rather than being turned into compost.

Lethbridge residents are asked to hold on to their yard bags until April 1 when waste sites are set to open, or take them to landfill now to be composted.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
