Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Due to the forecasted major winter storm event and expected poor weather and road conditions, curbside collection of garbage, organics, or recyclables in areas normally scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 3, 2014 will be CANCELLED and re-scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014.
Normally scheduled bi-weekly pick-up for next Friday, Jan. 10 will not be interrupted by tomorrow’s cancellation. In other words, if you would normally have organic pick-up on Friday Jan. 10, that will continue.
Residents are reminded to place materials curbside the evening prior to collection day or by 7:00 a.m. on collection day to ensure materials are picked up.
