It's been a much anticipated date on the calendar for City Council and many residents in Prince Rupert, as the City after a there month delay, launches curbside recycling and revamps its Garbage collection schedule to kick off 2022.
The last few weeks of December provided for the roll out of what's ahead, with a combination of online information, Social media messaging and home delivered flyers and information sheets providing for the background to the program.
Among one of the key changes is the shift for the most part to a dedicated day for neighbourhoods for the garbage/recycling collection, as well as the notice of two areas for collection each day as listed on the collection schedule below with the corresponding map above to serve as your guide.
