Holiday and New Years Refuse Collection, Drop Offs and Hours
During this holiday season there will be some disruption to the garbage collection service, recycling centre hours, and landfill schedule.
Garbage Collection and Temporary Bin Placement
On Tuesday and Wednesday, December 25 & 26, there will be no garbage collection. Regular service will resume on Thursday, December 27. Residents that normally have their garbage collected on Tuesday, January 1st, will be collected on Monday, December 31st, 2018. Please have your containers out by 7:00 a.m. with wheels furthest away from the curb.
For customers that are affected by the holiday schedule, we will be placing roll off bins at selected sites 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 22, 2018 until January 2nd, 2019. These bins are for waste only, not recycling products!
For residents living in the Valley and East Hardisty, two roll off bins will be placed at Jeles (Hardisty & Drinnan Way). Residents living in Thompson Lake, may access a roll off bin on McArdell Drive off of Highway 16. Residents living in the Eaton and Muldoon area may use the roll off bins located on Eaton Drive.
