Swift Current residents can expect another delay in garbage pick up over the coming days.
Waste collection contractor Waste Management has informed the city that they have experienced mechanical failures on two of their three garbage trucks, creating delays in residential garbage collection this week.
“Due to the truck failures, we would like to inform the public that garbage may not be collected on their regular scheduled days. Waste Management will be working longer hours, including Saturday, to try to ensure all residential waste is collected as quickly as possible and giving priority to those areas that receive front yard pick up. We anticipate the garbage collection will be back to full service within the next week,” stated Dan Knutson from the city Engineering Department.
