Garbage collection and curbside recycling pickup for some residents will be changing this month, as Christmas and New Year’s both fall on a Thursday this year.
That means the pick-up schedule will jump ahead one day for both of those weeks, for any residents who normally have pick up on Thursday or Friday.
For example, if your regular collection day is Thursday, your garbage will be picked up on Friday instead. If your regular collection is Friday, your pickup will take place on Saturday for the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s only.
Residents in the Central Okanagan Regional District are asked to place garbage and recycling carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure the lids are completely closed.
They also want to remind people this holiday season that all shiny and foil wrapping paper and cards, ribbons and bows can be saved for re-use. And all other wrapping paper (non foil), flattened boxes and cartons should be placed in your recycling cart.
