Recycling collection delays in Hamilton

HAMILTON, ON – City of Hamilton recycling collection crews are currently experiencing delays due to extreme cold weather and a surplus of recycling materials from over the holidays.

Waste and recycling collection schedules were deferred by one day this week due to the holiday on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018. However, due to delays experienced by collectors, some collection of recycling is behind schedule.

Any residents with collection scheduled for today or tomorrow, or with blue box recycling that has not been picked up as scheduled, should keep their recycling at the curb for pick-up on Saturday, Jan. 6 or Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018.

Crews plan to catch up to regularly scheduled pick-up for Monday, Jan 8, 2018.

The City thanks residents for their patience and cooperation.
