The City of Lethbridge Waste Utility & Environment Department has for the last 25+ years offered the residents of Lethbridge a ‘Christmas Tree Recycling Program’. The Christmas Trees are picked up at each participating household and chipped into wood chips that are used in City parks. We would like to open up this fundraising opportunity to any interested youth groups in Lethbridge. In return for the delivery of the program, your youth group will receive $10,000 for the city-wide collection program.
If you’ve been looking for the final push to drop off those remaining fall yard waste bags, here it is. Sunday, November 19 is the final day the three City yard waste sites will be open this year. The sites will be closed for the season Monday, November 20.
Residents in Lethbridge have experienced everything from snowstorms in September to 15-degree days in December. The northern Alberta fires this year showed just how costly mother nature can be to communities, livelihoods and municipal infrastructure.
