On Friday, Nov. 30, the three City of Lethbridge yard waste sites will close for the season.
Yard waste sites were open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations:
- Bridge Drive West Recycling Station - at the top of Bridge Dr. W. hill, right before the junction of Bridge Dr. W. and University Dr.
- Stafford Drive North Recycling Station - located at the junction of Stafford Dr. N. and Scenic Dr. N.
- South Side Recycling Station - located on 28 Ave. S. between the Lethbridge Soccer Complex and Lethbridge Judo Club
In 2018, a total of 1.41 million kilograms of yard waste was diverted from the landfill. The weight of this yard waste is equivalent to 870 mid-sized cars! Grass, leaves and garden waste collected at yard waste sites is composted at the Waste & Recycling Centre and used in city parks and planting beds.
The Waste & Recycling Centre will accept yard waste for composting between Dec. 1 and Mar. 31, with no disposal fees charged to city residents on Saturdays. Recycling stations remain open year round.
