Long weekend causing changes to Blue Box collection

The upcoming Victoria Day long weekend will mean some changes for scheduled curbside blue box collection.

Between Monday, May 21 and Saturday, May 26, Blue Box collection will temporarily be moved to the day following regularly scheduled pick up dates.

This means that residents with collection scheduled for May 21 will temporarily have their collection moved to May 22. This shift will continue throughout the week with collection scheduled for Friday, May 25 being moved to Saturday, May 26.

Garbage and green bin collection in Oshawa is conducted by the city, not the Region of Durham.

Oshawa residents are asked to check their waste calendars or contact their local municipality regarding collection of these items during the Victoria Day holiday, and reminded to have blue box materials at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of collection.
