REMINDER: Holiday and New Years Residential Garbage Collection
December 23, 2020
During this holiday season there will be some disruption to the garbage collection service.
Please note that Friday, December 25th and Friday, January 1st, there will be no garbage collection. Regular service will commence on Monday, December 28th. Residents that normally have their garbage collected on Friday, December 25th will be collected on Monday, December 28th, 2020. Please have your containers out by 7:30 a.m. curbside. Please note – the next schedule pickup for Friday customers will be January 8th, 2021.
For customers that are affected by the holiday schedule, we will be placing roll off bins on Macleod Avenue and Roland Street on December 31st, to provide an alternative to dispose of your waste. Please ensure that your waste is bagged and tied to reduce litter. The bins will be available from December 31st, 2020 until January 5th, 2021 for customers on Friday’s collection. These bins are for waste only, not recycling products!
Winter hours at the Recycle Depot are Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
