Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – Due to the winter storm expected to hit the Halifax region tonight, the Halifax Regional Municipality has decided to cancel curbside collection of garbage, organics, and recyclables on Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Please do not place materials curbside for collection tomorrow. Residents who normally have collection on Wednesday should instead place their waste at the curb before 7 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16.

The municipality is also advising residents and commercial solid waste haulers that due to this bad weather, the following Solid Waste facilities will be closed this Wednesday:
