Automated garbage collection will begin in Kimberley June 12th.
Before that, the City of Kimberley is set to deliver new collection carts to all residents Tuesday and Wednesday.
Inside each collection bin will be guidelines on how to use the new carts and how to place them on collection day.
The City advises you will have to keep the bins indoors to keep them away from wildlife, except on your designated collection dates.
Staff believe the change to automated pick-up will make garbage collection quicker, more cost-efficient and safer for both workers and residents.
Meanwhile, the City of Fernie’s automated garbage service got underway Monday morning, after bins were delivered over the last three weeks.
