Biweekly garbage collection will begin next week in Regina.
City residents are being told their collection day will not change, but will only get their garbage collected once every two weeks.
David Hughes is the Manager of Solid Waste Collection for the City of Regina, and says there have been mixed reviews from the public.
“Like any other change, there has certainly been some push back, it is a big change,” Hughes says. “It’s a different service, level, but to be honest, for the most part it’s been generally positive. People understand it’s part of our much larger waste-diversion plan, so people are getting on board.”
Hughes says any additional questions can be answered on the city’s website.
“If you are unsure, you can log on to regina.ca/waste, type in your address and you’ll get your collection calendar. If that doesn’t work, or if you don’t have a computer, call service Regina at 777-7000, and tell them your address and they will tell you what your (day of the) week is.”
The City hopes to save $132,000 by moving to bi-weekly collection.
