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.”
