Additional Information Regarding Holiday Collections
In order to collect refuse and recycling from two collection districts in a single shift, the Streets Division diverts crews from other services such as leaf collection and large item collection to refuse and recycling operations. Therefore, residents requiring large item collection or leaf collection should anticipate delays, or consider bringing the material to a drop-off site.

More information regarding all of the services provided by the Streets Division can be found on the Streets Division website.
