(Red Deer, Alberta)

Cart collection schedules have been adjusted for residents with Wednesday cart collection to accommodate the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day statutory holidays, which both fall on a Wednesday this year.

Residents with regular Wednesday collection will have their December 25 and January 1 cart collection rescheduled as follows:

  • Inglewood, Ironstone, McKenzie Trail, Downtown, Parkvale, Waskasoo and Woodlea will be moved to the following Thursday.
  • South Hill, Sunnybrook, Michener Hill West, and Evergreen will be moved to the following Friday.
  • Bower, Grandview, and Mountview will be moved to the following Monday.

Collection schedules will return to normal on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. See schedule for further details.

Residents with a collection day other than Wednesday will have no collection changes over the holidays.

  • Carts must be set out before 7 a.m. for pickup
  • Wrapping paper, tissue paper and Styrofoam are not accepted in Blue Carts, as The City’s recycling program is currently unable to process these materials.
