ICYMI: Green Carts rolling out in Regina
The newest tool in the war on waste will be rolling to your door.
The City of Regina will begin delivering the “Green Carts” starting today (Saturday). These carts go right along side your brown cart for garbage, and your blue bin for recycling.
The “Green Carts” come with a small kitchen catcher you place on the counter. You empty that into the larger bin.
“Green Carts” will take in food waste, bones, grease, napkins, paper towels and yard waste.
The goal is to reduce 50 percent of the waste taken to the landfill.
The carts are supposed to be delivered by September 1st, with collection starting September 4th.

This means a change in waste collection, which will move to being biweekly all year round. The “Green Carts” will have biweekly pick up in the winter, and weekly pick up in the summer months.
