All residents will be part of a curbside recycling program.
The issue of curbside recycling has been prominent for the past few years. On Monday night, after more than an hour of debate, councillors passed a motion to accept Loraas’ proposal for a citywide curbside recycling program for a three-year term. This will be a mandatory service and will likely begin this fall.
“I really feel it’s time that as a city we take the step and move towards curbside recycling,” said Mayor Deb Higgins. “I firmly believe that in the long-run, this is the best move for the City of Moose Jaw.”
