Collection in Zone 3, however, is rescheduled for next Wednesday, January 22. All garbage, recycling and green waste will be collected in Zone 3A and 3B. 

Normal collection is scheduled to resume in all areas next week. 

City tips:

  • Green waste that are frozen inside the toters or located in laneways which are inaccessible may have to remain until the following week's scheduled collection. Please remove green waste receptacles by end of day today. 
  • Please remove snow from the top of your garbage and green bins, plus a minimum of 3 feet on all sides in order for the mechanical arm on the trucks to successfully pick them up
  • Please do not place bins behind or on top of snow banks
