The City of Swift Current is currently dealing with mechanical problems which are impacting garbage pick up along with services at the Recycling Depot.
The City of Swift Current announced on their Facebook page that during this past week there have been delays in residential garbage collection, with the contractor committed to trying to ensure the delays are dealt with as quickly as possible.
To make this process as efficient as possible, the City is asking residents to have their garbage out by 7 a.m. on scheduled collection days, and they are also asked to make bins and cans as visible as possible for the garbage collectors.
City officials are also noting that as a result of mechanical issues, the Recycling Depot is not able to accept paper or cardboard items as recycle bins are at capacity. They are able to accept plastic, tin cans, glass and batteries.
