Garbage and recycling collection may be delayed due to the weather conditions today. Collection will continue throughout the day. If your garbage and recycling isn’t picked up by the end of the day, please leave it at the curb for collection tomorrow.

The winter weather can make collection of garbage and recyclables very challenging. Please make sure that your waste containers are visible, not buried in the snow or perched on top of a snow bank.

Recyclables can also be dropped off at the Recycling Depot at 390 Pido Road, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For recycling collection inquiries, please call 705-742-3139.
