Let's Talk Trash 2022

Let's Talk Trash!

The City of Lethbridge is creating a Waste Management Plan to guide the future of waste diversion and prevention-related activities within the City of Lethbridge. The City aims to advance the current waste management system in an effort to shift to a circular economy.

This plan contributes directly to achieving one of City Council’s six strategic priorities: protecting and preserving our natural environment in Lethbridge, aiming to promote and provide opportunities for waste diversion.

Get Involved

The City is currently looking for resident feedback on the barriers to reducing household waste, exploring incentives to encourage more residential diversion and to hear what ways they think the City should be involved in creating a more sustainable Lethbridge.

You have multiple opportunities to share your thoughts of the future of waste management and sustainability in Lethbridge during this second phase of engagement. You can answer the online survey between October 24-November 20 and enter to win one of three $100 Downtown Lethbridge gift cards. You can also join one of the following information sessions:

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Key concepts of the Master Plan are waste reduction and waste diversion, meaning items stay out of the landfill to begin with. This is mostly done by using the three Rs framework: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

    The City of Lethbridge has waste diversion targets specific to the residential sector. Targets in the residential sector are measured by calculating the amount of diverted material relative to the amount of waste generated overall. 

    The current Waste Diversion Policy goals for the residential sector are: 

    • By 2030, 65% waste diversion 

    In order to meet the 2030 goal, the City implement additional waste diversion methods. The following questions will help the City understand current challenges with waste reduction and diversion and the level of support for new ideas to meet the 2030 target.
