Did you forget when you decided to take out the trash? That is something for which there is an application. Lethbridge has released the “Lethbridge Loop,” a new free mobile application for iOS and Android smartphones. It will be a reminder of upcoming city events such as garbage and recycling dates, scheduled power limits, road cleaning, and water remediation.
You can also play a game where, for waste reasons, you get different things into the perfect world. For example, you have to decide where the best place to turn the old microwave would be. Mayor Blaine Hyggen said the facility would add a level of convenience to the daily lives of Lethbridge residents. Alberta and Lethbridge record the deadliest year for drug overdose in 2021
I am happy to see that the city has taken steps to talk to residents directly about things that are important in their daily lives and I hope to be a ‘binfluencer’ in my driveway and encourage others to download the app then let them enter the loop. ” Currently, the City uses text messaging services. Launched in April, the cost of the service is set to increase so city officials decided to create their own app instead.
“The cost of sending text updates is much higher than what was available at one time. We will save that $ 10,000 a year by having a share of the material. ”As a way to encourage residents to access the Loop, the City is offering two gift packages to residents who download the app. To enter contests and learn more about details and locations, head to the City’s social media pages.
