Here’s a little of what is happening around Chilliwack over the holidays.
There are changes to curbside garbage collection pickups for those whose pickup day lands on a statutory holiday, such as Tuesday, Dec. 25, when pickup was a day earlier, Monday, Dec. 24. Instead of Tuesday, Jan. 1, trash will be collected on Monday, Dec. 31.
The Bailey Landfill is closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, while the Parr Road Green Depot is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
Residents who have curbside garbage pickup can put out their Christmas trees at the curb on their regular collection day. Keep in mind, trees in plastic bags, with flocking on them or ornaments cannot be accepted for composting.
Non curbside residents can drop off trees, limit of four per residence, at no charge at the Parr Road Green Depot, Dec. 31 to Jan. 12. The depot is closed New Year’s Day.
