Garbage, recycling, and Green Bin pick-up delayed by snow and icy road conditions

December 21 2013

City waste collection services

On Sunday December 22, City crews will provide garbage, recycling and Green Bin collection service to some areas under the purple zone on the collection calendar. This extra pick up is to make up for missed collection this week, due to the colder weather which prevented safe and efficient collection in some areas. 

What to do if you were missed

If you are a resident in Day 4 of the collection calendar, place your carts and recycling material out for collection. 

We will do our best to service all missed areas. To prioritize worker and public safety, there will be areas of Day 4 that may not be serviced including the steep hills between Boundary Road, Dundas, and Skeena Streets. We will put extra crews out next week to complete work in the areas not serviced tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience.
