Weekly garbage collection in Regina returns next week

Regina will be moving back to weekly garbage collection starting next week and running throughout the spring and summer months.

The service will take effect on Monday, April 6.

City officials have received concerns from citizens about the need for increased garbage capacity because they are working from home and children are not attending school.

The city is also reminding residents to help protect their heath and safety 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 such as water or beverage bottles, pop cans, milk or juice cartons.
