Christmas and New Year’s are days where everyone deserves a day off, and as such garbage and recycling will not be collected on those days.
Because this year the statutory holidays fall on a Wednesday, certain neighbourhoods will see their pickup day shift. Homes typically scheduled for Wednesday pickup will have to adjust when they set their waste at the curb.
Residents in downtown, Parkvale, South Hill, Waskasoo and Woodlea will have their garbage collected on Thursday.
Sunnybrook, Southbrook, Bower and Inglewood collection is moved to Friday.
Mountview, Grandview and Michener Hill west of 40th Avenue will have their collection the following Monday.
Residents with questions can contact the city by calling 403-340-2583.
The city would like to remind residents to not put Christmas wrapping paper, tissue paper or Styrofoam in their blue box as the city’s residential recycling program is unable to process these materials.
All materials must be put out before 7 a.m. for pickup.
