Ward 7 News: Changes to Holiday Garbage and Recycling Pick-up

  • Share

Ward 7 official website

With Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on Thursdays this year, and residential garbage and recycling service not provided on holidays, Waste & Recycling Services have established the following alternate dates for blue and black cart pick-up:

• No collection on Thursday, December 25 -> Alternate date Monday, December 29th
• No collection on Thursday, January 1 -> Alternate date Monday, January 5th
• Regular Thursday collection will resume on January 8th, 2015.

An informational postcard will be mailed directly to all affected residents with Thursday collection. The cards should arrive in homes the week of December 15 via Canada Post.

Benefits to residents:
• Scheduling the alternate collection days to follow the holidays will ensure that residents do not miss their scheduled pickup.
• Heavier garbage and recycling loads created during the holidays will be picked up closer to the holiday dates.
• Residents will continue to receive the same quality of service during the holidays as on their regular collection day.
