In addition, during the winter, the region is reminding residents to to:
- Ensure your Blue Box, Green Cart and garbage materials are visible to collection crews.
- Do not place your Green Cart, Blue Box or garbage on top of snow banks. This prevents bins from getting stuck or frozen.
- Place your Green Cart, Blue Box or garbage bins back from the road to allow snowplows to clear the streets.
