Municipal solid waste collection cancelled for Thursday, Mar. 19

Wednesday, Mar. 18, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that curbside collection of garbage, organics, and recyclables is cancelled for tomorrow, Thursday, Mar. 19, as a result of today’s storm and its impact on road conditions throughout the region.

Please note that tomorrow’s solid waste collection will be postponed to Thursday, Apr. 2, the next scheduled pick up day.

For those areas on garbage week, the municipality will accommodate the missed collection by allowing double the regular garbage bag limit on Thursday, Apr. 2. Rescheduling Thursday’s collection to Saturday is not possible given today’s solid waste collection was already rescheduled to Saturday, Mar. 21.

Municipal solid waste facilities will re-open for regular operating hours on Thursday, Mar. 19, including:

  • Otter Lake Waste Processing & Disposal Facilities at 600 Otter Lake Dr.
  • Materials Recycling Facility at 20 Horseshoe Lake Dr.
  • Composting Facilities at 80 Gloria McCluskey Ave. in Burnside and 61 Evergreen Place in Goodwood

The municipality apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. For solid waste collection schedules and sorting information, please visit
