As Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on Wednesday this year, residents with Wednesday collection will receive service two days early – on Monday, December 23 and 30. By picking up Wednesday garbage and recycling on Monday for two weeks, those residents will continue to receive weekly service. Regular Wednesday service will resume on January 8, 2014. There are no temporary changes for those with collection on Tuesday, Thursday (including Boxing Day) or Friday.
In our ward, there is Wednesday collection in Edgemont.
We will inform residents of the temporary changes by using tactics similar to what was used for collection day changes in November:
- Direct mail – A notice will be mailed in mid-December to residents with Wednesday collection. Only those with Wednesday collection will receive the notice, which is attached to this email.
- Community newsletter ads – Where available, ads have been published in December issues.
- Community signage – Bold signs will be set up in strategic locations starting Dec. 19.Internet and 311 –
- Information is found on Calgary.ca, Twitter and Facebook, or by calling 311.
