Garbage collection days changing over Christmas and News Year's

With Christmas Day and New Year’s Day falling on Tuesday this year, pick- up schedule for your garbage and recycling will jump one day ahead for both of those weeks.

For example, if your regular collection day is Tuesday, your garbage will be picked up on Wednesday instead. If your regular collection is Friday, your pickup 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.

Residents are asked to place garbage and recycling carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure the lids are completely closed.

Recycling:

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.

Recycling and landfill operations:

  • The Glenmore Landfill and Recycling Depot, Glenmore Road (7:30am-4:45pm, closed Dec 25th, 26th, and Jan 1st)
  • The Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Center, Asquith Road (7:30am-4:00pm Friday thru Monday)
  • Kirschner Road Recycling Depot (8am-6pm, closed Dec 25th and Jan1st)
