Courtenay garbage collection day adjusted for holidays

Courtenay garbage collection day adjusted for holidays

Is your garbage, yard waste and recycling picked up on Tuesdays?

If so, please make a note to put your items out at the curb a day earlier over the holiday season.

The City of Courtenay’s garbage contractor, Emterra, will not be operating on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, which fall on Tuesdays this year. Emterra is adjusting the regular pickup schedule over the holiday season for residents whose garbage and recycling fall on those days, with pickup happening one day sooner.

• Christmas Day pickup has been rescheduled to Monday, Dec. 24

• New Year’s Day pickup has been rescheduled to Monday, Dec. 31

Never miss a collection day again: get customized collection calendars including service alerts by email, text, and phone, plus information on what goes where. Find the “Courtenay Collects” app on the City website at www.courtenay.ca/recycling and as a smartphone app available free of charge for download from Google Play and the Apple Store.
