On March 21 and 22, scheduled back lane garbage collection wasn’t possible for several neighbourhoods due to the wind and snow conditions. In order to “catch up” on these missed collections, the City will attempt to collect that garbage from the back lanes tomorrow, March 27, starting very early in the morning when the forecasted below normal temperatures should provide more predictable driving conditions for the large collection trucks.

Residents in the following neighbourhoods who did not have garbage collected from back lanes last week, are asked to please place your garbage carts in the back lanefor collection before 5:00 a.m. tomorrow, March 27:

  • Holliston
  • Brevoort Park
  • Nutana
  • Avalon
  • Holiday Park

Some residents in these neighbourhoods placed their garbage carts on the front street today, and that garbage has been collected.  Following the attempt at lane collection in these five neighbourhoods, all areas of the city will have garbage collected from the front street.  If the attempt tomorrow is unsuccessful, the containers will be collected from the front street on the regularly schedule day next week.


Catching up on recycling collection will also be attempted tomorrow, starting very early in the morning.  Residents in the following neighbourhoods who did not have recycling collected from their back lanes for the last two weeks, are asked to please place your recycling carts in the back lane for collection before 5:00 a.m. tomorrow, March 27:

  • Adelaide/Churchill
  • Exhibition
  • Haultain
  • Nutana
  • Queen Elizabeth
  • Caswell Hill
  • Westmount
  • Holiday Park
  • King George
  • Pleasant Hill
  • Brevoort Park
  • Eastview
  • Holliston
  • Nutana Park
  • Varsity View

All residents are reminded that garbage and recycling collection is temporarily front-street, city-wide until the snowmelt is over and all back lanes are accessible, which is expected to be at least four to six weeks. The regular schedule will be followed as much as possible, and if containers are not collected, residents are to leave them out for collection the following day.
