Curbside Recycling, Compostables and Garbage Collection


For February 19, 2019:

Curbside collection may be delayed in some hillside areas in the Tuesday-B Collection Zone due to winter weather conditions. Collection crews are attempting to complete recycling and compostables collections this afternoon (February 19), with make-up collections tomorrow (February 20). If your material is not collected today (Feb 19) please set it back out at the curb by 7 AM tomorrow (Feb 20).

For February 12 – 15, 2019:

Curbside collection may be delayed in all areas this week due to winter weather conditions. Collection crews are focusing on collecting garbage (if applicable) and recycling, and will not be collecting compostables this week. Please shovel a path from the roadway to your bins to assist crews in servicing your materials.

Please do not set out your Green Cart as it will not be collected until your collection day next week. As compostables may be frozen to the bottom or sides of your bin, loosen with a shovel or broom handle when collection resumes to ensure your bin is fully emptied.

Homes that are missed this week will be allowed to put out double the usual amount of material on your next collection day. Missed garbage will be collected on your next bi-weekly garbage day.
