Lethbridge residents are being asked to kick their clutter to the curb this weekend. You can leave your old pieces of furniture with a sign that says free on Friday night. After that you can cruise around in your vehicle and pick up any of the items during the weekend. Kathleen Sheppard, the Executive Director of Environment Lethbridge says during the last few years there have been 400 to 500 households that have registered for this event.
“I think we’re probably on track for about the same number. This is Lethbridge, so the bulk of the registrations come in the week before. There’s no question about that. Last time I checked I think we were at about 150 or so, which is about usually where we are at this time of year. It really is spread out throughout the city pretty evenly. It’s been a little while since I’ve broken down those numbers. I think there’s maybe a few more on the Westside, but it’s not like a dramatic difference. It’s pretty uniform across the city.”
Sheppard says more than 1,400 boxes of smaller items and nearly 750 larger items, such as furniture, were given away in 2018.
