Waste collection now occurs on stat holidays

April 12, 2019
As part of schedule changes made earlier this year, and as an enhanced service to residents, the Town wants to ensure residents know that waste collection will now occur as usual on most stat holiday that fall Tuesday through Friday.
This means residents with Friday collection (Cimarron residents in zones 7 and 8), can expect regular curbside pick-up of garbage, recycling and organics on Good Friday - April 19, 2019.

With collection now happening on most stat holidays, residents will only see two days per year where collection days will change, which are Christmas Day and New Years day.

Residents are being asked to assist drivers with collection on stat holidays, especially in cul-de-sacs, by:
  1. moving carts out from between parked cars (or move cars altogether when possible).
  2. placing carts out by 7 AM (as usual) – our drivers will be out bright and early as usual, even though it’s a stat holiday. If planning a sleep in, please put carts out the night before.

If carts are not placed out on the stat holiday, households will need to wait until their next scheduled collection for pick up.

Residents are encouraged to use the waste app or online calendar to stay up-to-date on their pick-up schedule.
