Councillor Partridge is pleased to report there will be no interruption to waste collection with regular service now confirmed. Waste collection crews will be catching up on any collection delays over the coming week. We ask you to please continue to put your waste at the curb on the regular collection day. Any resident who did not have their waste collected on their regular collection day should leave it at the curb for one extra day.
PLEASE NOTE: Leaf and Yard waste temporarily resuming
I am pleased to share that Leaf and Yard waste curbside collection will be resuming on a bi-weekly basis in Waterdown/Flamborough starting Monday April 20th . Due to the COVID-19 situation, collection will occur during the week, not necessarily on your waste collection day. Staff have asked to have leaf & yard waste at the curb by 7am on Mondays for collection when possible.
Residents are still able to bring leaf and yard waste to one of the Community Recycling Centres for free. The closest centre to Waterdown/Flamborough is the Dundas transfer station on Olympic Drive, Dundas. Regular garbage and recycling / waste collection remains uninterrupted.
Please help to Keep Collectors Healthy
The City of Hamilton waste collection crews are out on the streets, picking up green bins, blue boxes and garbage. While crews have their own health and safety procedures in place, we are asking you to help protect them on the job:
- Place used tissues and napkins in the garbage, rather than the green bin.
- Please use liner bags (either paper or certified compostable plastic) in the green bin if possible.
- Please ensure that all material placed in garbage bins is bagged, not kept loose.
- Please follow the advice of Public Health and keep a physical social distance of at least two meters from waste collection staff.
These steps will help protect the health of crews who handle thousands of bins, bags and boxes each week.
