City of Lethbridge installing recycling baskets in parks

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

The City of Lethbridge is making recycling easier in city parks by developing metal mesh baskets that attach to existing garbage bins and include a latch system that anyone can open, so that those looking for bottles and cans in park garbage bins have an easier and safer time. Approximately 120 recycling baskets will be installed in various parks this fall as a pilot project.

“I’m really proud of how our staff came together to address this issue,” stated David Ellis, city parks manager in a recent news release. “We drew out different concepts and created a prototype out of cardboard and duct tape. Then we found a manufacturer to turn our idea into the final product.”
