The Regional Municipality of Durham, Works Department would like to advise residents...

that due to the extreme cold weather and high volumes of seasonal waste, waste collection times may be delayed.

When:   If your waste has not been collected by 8 p.m. on your collection day, it will be collected the following day.
Where:  Households across Durham Region who currently receive curbside collection services.
Why:  Waste collection times may be delayed due to the extreme cold weather and high volumes of seasonal waste.

Note:   For the safety of workers, please ensure waste, blue boxes and green bins are placed in a visible and accessible area before 7 a.m. on your collection day. Don’t place waste materials on top of snow banks, and ensure they are not frozen to the ground.

Garbage and green bin collection for Whitby and Oshawa residents is the responsibility of the municipality, not the Region of Durham. Residents are asked to contact their local municipality regarding the collection of these items.
