Swift Current residents doing spring yardwork this weekend have an opportunity to dump their yard waste for free on Saturday at the Swift Current Landfill.
A Free Yard Waste Day at the landfill will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., where city residents can bring their residential yard waste to the landfill at no charge. Regular residential garbage loads cost $5 to dump.
Once inside the landfill, residents are asked to take branches to the woodpile, while leaves, grass clippings and organic material can be deposited in the compost pile. The City is requesting that residents tarp their loose material loads when travelling to the landfill. Residents droping off bagged compost are asked to remove the material from the bags.
