Weekly garbage collection resumes next week
Waste collection is an essential service. The City is moving to weekly garbage collection throughout the spring and summer months, as planned, starting on Monday, April 6.
The City has received feedback from residents through Service Regina and on social media about the need for increased garbage capacity because so many people are working from home and children are out of school. Residents are encouraged to sign up for collection reminders at Regina.ca/waste.
We ask that residents do their part to help protect the health and safety of our waste collection staff and partners by following these guidelines:
- Ensure that all material placed in garbage carts is bagged, specifically tissues/napkins and cleaning wipes.
- Ensure proper cart placement to avoid manual handling by the driver
- Do NOT overfill your carts or leave loose items on the ground
- If you’re sick: place ANY item that has come into contact with your mouth, nose or eyes into the garbage – even items that you normally place into your Blue Cart (i.e. water/beverage bottles, pop cans, milk/juice cartons, etc.)
