Delivery of Green Carts Begins August 5
Starting Saturday, August 5, 2023, over 67,000 Green Carts will start to be delivered for the Food and Yard Waste program.
Green Carts will be delivered Mondays to Saturdays to residents who receive curbside waste collection service. The carts are expected to be fully delivered by September 1 and service begins the week of September 4.
The City of Regina reminds residents what to do when their green cart arrives:
- Cut the zip tie and bring your kitchen catcher inside - review the educational guide and place the helpful information magnet on your fridge.
- Check your collection schedule to know when to put out your carts - search your address on ca/waste or on the Regina Waste App.
- Start using your cart August 28 for food waste as collection will start the following week.
All food scraps, including meat, bones, dairy and greases, yard waste and greasy pizza boxes, napkins and tissues can go into the green cart, which will divert roughly 50 per cent of the average household’s waste from the landfill.
Brown cart schedules will change to accommodate the new green cart. With the addition of the green cart, brown cart collection moves permanently to biweekly collection, year-round.
Green cart collection will be weekly through the warmer months and biweekly through the winter.
