Garbage collection delayed today by weather


February 4, 2013

MONCTON – The City of Moncton advises residents that garbage collection may be delayed today as a result of the weather and road conditions.

The City of Moncton appreciates your cooperation and also thanks its residents for respecting the following tips to make snow removal operations safer and more efficient:

  • Place waste at the end of your driveway on the ground, not on top of snow banks. This makes it easier for the collectors, who for safety reasons, are directed not to climb snow banks. If you put your garbage on a snow bank, City collection crews will not pick it up.
  • If you think a snow plow will be passing shortly, wait until after it has passed to place your waste curb side or place your garbage far enough away from the end of your driveway so the plow does not bury or damage it as it passes.
  • If your waste was not picked up because of a storm, please remove it from the curb side and wait until your next waste collection day.

The City would like to once again thank its citizens for their understanding and continued support in making our streets safer through the winter season.
