Lloydminster, AB/SK To better meet the needs of residents, the City of Lloydminster is moving to bi-weekly organics collection from Nov. 6, 2017 - April 2, 2018.

With the absence of yard waste, the City observes an 80 per cent decrease in curbside organics collection during the winter. The change will proportionately address seasonal waste demands, before resuming a weekly schedule in the spring.

“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 aims to increase efficiency with minimal impact to services.”

The move to Bi-weekly collection is estimated to result in savings of over $30,000 annually, allowing the leftover capital to fund the cost of organics processing.

Documents containing zoning and scheduling information will be distributed via Canada Post to applicable homes. For more details, go to lloydminster.ca/green123.
