No garbage pickup in Chilliwack on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day

Those with Tuesday collection days must have their waste curbside the day before

A couple of garbage day changes are coming over the holidays for curbside collection customers in Chilliwack.

“Please note there is no curbside collection on Tuesday, December 25, Christmas Day,” reads the City of Chilliwack notice.

That means that curbside waste that would typically go out on Tuesday, Dec. 25 has to be put out on the curb the day before, December 24.

So Tuesday collection residents should have their materials out no later than 7 a.m. on Monday, December 24.

The same thing happens on New Year’s Day.

There will be no curbside collection on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, New Year’s Day. So curbside collection for for Jan. 1, once again has to be put out the day before, on Monday, December 31. Tuesday collection residents should have their materials to the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday, December 31.

Those who have Wednesday, Thursday or Friday curbside collection days are not affected by these changes.
