|The Holiday period makes for shifting collection dates for garbage|
You've got bags of leftovers fermenting in a garbage can at the back of your house and you're probably wondering to yourself, when will I next see the Garage truck?
As it does after every long weekend, the City's Garbage collection schedule makes for a bit of a shift, this time around compounded by the Holiday period which can leave anyone a little confounded as to when to haul your tubs to the curb for the weekly pick up.
Today marks the final day of rest for the garbage collectors, who return to work on Tuesday.
For those living on the harbour side of the Northwest sector of the city, along with those in Haysvale and the Taylor and Borden Street areas (see the area in yellow from the Map above) Tomorrow is the day to bid farewell to your Holiday trash.
Residents of remainder of the city will shift their calendars by two days for their final pick up of 2020 and the introduction to the 2021 schedule.
The New Year brings another shift and you can mark your date from the full calendar provided by the City of Prince Rupert from their website section related to Garbage collection and Recycling.
