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 suspended
Beginning Tuesday March 24, the City will suspend curbside pick up of leaf and yard waste until further notice. Residents are directed to either hold on to their leaf and yard waste, or take it to one of the Community Recycling Centres. The closest centre to Waterdown/Flamborough is the Dundas transfer station on Olympia Drive, Dundas.
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.
