The City is reminding residents that garbage and recycling containers need to be placed at the curb and cannot be placed on top of snowbanks.

In a press release the City says it is the responsibility of residents to shovel snow away from the spot where they normally place containers and to ensure there are no piles of snow in front of the containers. Containers must not be moved further out into the street.

As in the past, the City will continue to clean the streets when it is snowing and the plow trucks will pay special attention to areas where the garbage/recycling containers are placed.

If City crews need to use trucks to remove snow they will do so on days when there is no garbage collection.

People with questions about the program can contact Joe Engelberts, manager of water and waste at 250-391-1785.
