Registration for Garbage Expo Filling Up Quickly

The issue of garbage collection in Winnipeg is a touchy one, and as such, an expo devoted entirely to the topic will be held on Saturday.

As we told you about in October, the “Speak Up on Garbage Expo” is taking place at the Winnipeg Convention Centre from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m on November 13.

The idea is to get opinions from the public on how best to handle garbage and recycling pickup within the city.

The city says space is limited to 120 participants and seats are filling up. Residents can register by phoning 311 or by visiting

Residents are encouraged to check the website regularly for other opportunities (e.g., web blogs, open houses) to share their thoughts over the next six months.
