Lethbridge green cart program getting provincial funding
The Alberta government is investing $4.75 million in Lethbridge to support municipal infrastructure improvements.
The Municipal Sustainability Initiative money will be used by the City of Lethbridge for the purchase of solid waste carts and vehicles across the west and east sides of the city.
This money is specifically for the carts and trucks needed for the organics curbside program. Funding for the processing facility for the organics program comes from federal gas tax funding.
In a statement, MLA for Lethbridge East Nathan Neudorf stated “The City of Lethbridge prioritizes requests for funding and I am happy to see that this project was accepted with such a significant amount allocated. I am excited to see these projects be completed.”
