Garbage collection changes

Lake Country residents will see the collection of garbage and recycling jump one day ahead over the holidays

With Christmas Day and New Year’s Day on Tuesday this year, Lake Country residents will see the collection of garbage and recycling jump one day ahead.

For example, if your regular collection day is Tuesday, your garbage will be picked up on Wednesday instead. If your regular collection is Friday, your pickup will take place on Saturday for the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s only.

“Monday collection days are not affected. Only residents with collection Tuesday through Friday are affected,” said Rae Stewart, Regional District of Central Okanagan waste reduction facilitator.

“All collections return to the normal Monday through Friday schedule Jan. 7.”

Place your garbage and recycling carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure the lids are completely closed.
