A solution appears to be in place regarding a delay in picking up garbage on Swift Current's south side.
This past week there has been a problem with garbage pick-up on the south side of the City of Swift Current due to the lack of equipment and manpower by the City’s contractor Waste Management. The City has been in regular contact with the company to correct this problem and address the pick up backlog.
Greg Parsons, City of Swift Current Manager of Public Works stated “as of today, Waste Management has sent representatives from Edmonton and Regina, along with sufficient manpower and equipment, to alleviate the problem. We are advised that the front yard collection work has been done in the City but lane pick-ups on the Southside have not. We are advised by their management team that they will address this concern by Thursday, May 16th.”
The City apologizes for any inconveniences and difficulties this situation has caused and asks residents to be patient until this matter is fully addressed.
