Blue box collection changes for Victoria Day

With another long weekend approaching, residents are being reminded that recycling pickup will be changing.

As a result of the Victoria Day long weekend, Oshawa and Whitby residents will have their collection moved to the following day, starting Monday, May 23. This means those that have Monday pickups will instead have their blue boxes collected on Tuesday.

The shift will continue until collection scheduled for Friday, May 27, which will take place the following day.

Residents are reminded to have their blue box materials at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of collection.
