City to issue letters and fines for improper use of garbage carts

Watch your waste and recycling carts in the city of Regina, because the city will be handing out some warnings and fines.
After receiving numerous litter and garbage complaints from residents, property owners will be issued a cart tag and letter for violations like an overfilled cart, material beside the cart or on the cart lid, material not bagged and cart left out after pickup.
If carts are misused after that, the first offence will be a fine of $150, the second is $200 and the third and each offence after that is $250.
Violations will be issued to the property owner, not tenants. The city said in a release that in extreme cases, they may consider suspending or cancelling collection services after several fines.
