Some Red Deer waste collection schedules change due to holiday season

Tuesday collections will be moved for two weeks

Red Deer’s waste collection schedules will be altered to accommodate the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day statutory holidays, which both fall on a Tuesday.

Residents with regular Tuesday pickup will see a change to their garbage, recycling and Green Cart

collection schedule from Dec. 25 to Jan. 4.

Homes with regular collection on Tuesdays will be temporarily rescheduled as follows:

– Johnstone Crossing, Johnstone Park and Normandeau will be moved to Wednesday collection.

– College Park, Kentwood, Timberstone and Timberlands will be moved to Thursday collection.

– Glendale, Pines and annexed areas will be moved to Friday collection.

Collection schedules will return to normal on Monday, Jan. 7.

Residents with questions can contact The City by calling The Blue Line at 403-340-BLUE (2583) or

visiting reddeer.ca/garbage.

Other reminders: Residents must set out all materials before 7 a.m. for pickup. And wrapping paper, tissue paper and Styrofoam are not accepted in blue boxes, as The City’s recycling program is unable to process these materials.
