Changes to Holiday Garbage and Recycling Collection
With Christmas Day and New Year’s Day falling on Tuesdays this year, pick-up schedules for your garbage and recycling will jump one day ahead for both of those weeks.
Therefore, if your regular collection day is Tuesday, your garbage will be picked up on Wednesday instead. If your regular collection is Wednesday, collection moves to Thursday; Thursday's pick-up moves to Friday and, Friday's service will take place on Saturday for the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s only. Monday collection days are not affected, only residents with collection Tuesday through Friday are affected. All collections return to the normal Monday through Friday schedule on Monday, January 7.
Please place your garbage and recycling carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure the lids are completely closed.
Remember to put all wrapping paper (except foil), flattened boxes and cartons into your recycling cart for curbside pick- up, or take to your nearest recycling depot. Keep the recycling spirit going by saving all shiny and foil wrapping paper and cards, ribbons and bows for re-use.
