Sydney, NS – The CBRM Solid Waste Department's annual Residential Heavy Garbage collection is postponed and rescheduled for Monday, May 18, 2015. The date has been changed to allow residents extra time to prepare for this year's collection.

"The unseasonal weather that we have been experiencing has contributed to this delay", said Manager of Solid Waste, Francis Campbell. "It's hoped the weather will improve over the next couple of weeks so people can better prepare for this year's collection. We encourage residents who have questions about what can be placed curbside for heavy garbage collection to contact the Waste Management Hotline."

Residents who live at properties eligible for curbside collection must have their large, heavy or bulky materials curbside no later than 6 a.m. on Monday, May 18. To review the guidelines for Heavy Garbage Collection, residents are encouraged to visit the CBRM website at www.cbrm.ns.ca or phone the Waste Management hotline at (902) 567-1337. Educators are available to respond to inquiries from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.

For your convenience, CBRM's Waste Management Facility located on SPAR Road in Sydney is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.
