BILD Lethbridge eager to recycle

October 7, 2019

Building Industry and Land Development Lethbridge wants to take part in the cities recycling program.

By having stations of their own, builders want to be able to separate construction waste such as drywall, cardboard, and wood from curbside recycling. The group says this will be cost effective way for Lethbridge to be even more eco friendly. 

"This was the best on all fronts. It's more cost effective, the environmental outcome, it's better, and it makes the neighborhoods," says BILD executive officer Bridget Mearns

The city has agreed to allow BILD’s extension on materials and recovery until March of next year to avoid surcharges in October.
