Community-wide Cart Relocation Engagement

Blue Carts

The City of Lethbridge collects garbage and recycling for over 34,000 households every week. City Council has also approved the introduction of a $5 per month residential organics program, with single-family homes set to receive a green cart in spring 2023.

Following several internal and external assessments, the City began the Cart Relocation Project (the Project) in 2017. The Project identified key neighborhood areas where it is now more efficient and safer to have waste carts collected from the front of residences, rather than from rear lanes. Changing the collection location for these neighborhoods saves on direct collection costs, while also reducing financial liability for items such as snow and ice control in lanes, as well as premature lane degradation.

Since the start of the Project, approximately 3,800 households have been relocated to front collection.

Now, the City wants to hear from you!

You are being asked to complete a short survey to share your opinion on the Project's next steps and how it may impact you.

The survey will be open from July 1 to August 1, 2022.
