Your Christmas present from the city of Campbell River: an extra can of garbage

The week following Christmas residents can put out extra garbage cans, free of cost

The City of Campbell River will carry on its annual holiday garbage tradition this year.

The week following Christmas residents can put out extra garbage cans, free of cost.

“From Dec. 26 to 30, Emterra (the city’s garbage contractor) will accept extra trash for curbside collection to help people clear away after the holidays,” said Jennifer Peters, the city’s utilities manager. That means no tags will be required for extra containers, but the weight limit of 20 kilograms or 44 pounds still applies.

Meanwhile, garbage and recycling collection days will remain the same in 2012.

“Once a Monday route, always a Monday route…or a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and so on,” Peters said. “And all waste collection remains weekly so there’s no worries about what’s picked up when. That’s one less thing for people to try to remember as they adjust to changes that tend to come with the new year.”

Anyone with questions about waste collection is encouraged to contact Emterra at (250) 286-0211. Campbell River waste collection guidelines and map are posted on the city’s website, www.campbellriver.ca under Residents/Garbage Recycling and Yard Waste. In the same location, people will also be able to see information to help them make the most of weekly unlimited recycling, including pick-up of plastics #1-7. Residents are also reminded that an online directory (www.campbellriverrecycles.ca) provides current information about where people can return and repurpose more items than those picked up through curbside collection.

Also on the website, find information about the city’s yard waste drop-off centre, which is open year-round Friday to Tuesday (closed Wednesday and Thursday), 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Located on the We Wai Kai Nation land, west side of Highway 19 (follow the signs from Willis Road), the drop-off centre service is available to residents who participate in the city’s curbside collection program. In 2012, weekly curbside yard waste collection will run Apr. 2 through Nov. 30. Residents without Internet access can pick up copies of waste collection information at city facilities or from Emterra drivers.
