The City of Winnipeg is spending big bucks so residents can dispose of bulky or large items more easily.

Mayor Sam Katz announced $2.7 million in funding for four drop-off facilities that would take large and bulky recyclable and reuseable waste.

The facilities would accept hazardous, construction, electronic or yard waste.

The facilities will be built over the next two years. The first centre will be built at Pacific Avenue west of McPhillips Street and the second at the Brady Landfill.
