Garbage pick up collection changes

Pick up schedules for your garbage and recycling will jump one day ahead for Christmas and New Year weeks.

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, Jan. 7.

Place your garbage and recycling carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure the lids are completely closed.

As for 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.

The recycling and landfill operations locations are:

• The Glenmore Landfill and Recycling Depot, Glenmore Road (7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., closed Dec 25, 26 and Jan. 1)

• The Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Center, Asquith Road (7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday through Monday)

• Kirschner Road Recycling Depot (8 a.m. to  6 p.m., closed Dec 25 and Jan. 1)
