Cold weather and staffing shortages blamed for garbage pickup delays

If your garbage or your recyclables were not picked up over the weekend, the region says you will have to wait until Saturday to have them picked up.

The region blames the delays on the cold weather, as well as staffing and vehicle issues.

Regional officials say anyone whose regular collection day is Friday, who still has grey and blue bins at the curb, should bring them back in and put them out  Saturday, January 6th for collection.

Residents in affected areas will also be allowed to place three garbage bags or containers curbside for collection Saturday as well.
