We thank everyone for their patience as we work to support waste collection during this labour disruption. Keeping public health and safety top of mind for our communities, we’ve temporarily changed the collection program to allow collection crews to focus on our first priority of picking up garbage and organics from homes affected by the strike. We encourage residents to visit our website or social channels often for updated information.
