Due to statutory holidays and the operational requirements of the City of Williams Lake and its solid waste contractor, collection days for wastes and recycling day will change during the weeks of statutory holidays starting with the Remembrance Day long weekend, Monday November 12th, says the city in a press release.

If your collection day falls on a statutory holiday, the collection of your solid waste will not happen that day. Instead the collection days for the week will move ahead by one day.

For example, if Monday is the statutory holiday then: Monday’s collection day will move to Tuesday, Tuesday’s collection day will move to Wednesday, Wednesday’s collection day will move to Thursday, and Thursday’s collection day will move to Friday.

A map of the rest of the year’s solid waste collection schedule including statutory holidays, is available on the city’s website www.williamslake.ca.

The map has been color coded for ease of use. A letter with the map will also be mailed to City households.
