Even garbage collectors get Christmas off

Garbage pickup has changed for Penticton, Osoyoos, Area A and others.

If your garbage day is Tuesday you’ll have to wait a couple extra days to get rid of that pesky torn up wrapping paper.

Residents with Tuesday garbage collection in the City of Penticton, District of Summerland, Town of Osoyoos and Electoral Area A, will have their garbage picked up the Saturday before Christmas (Dec. 22). The same will happen for New Year’s day with collection occurring Dec. 29.

No other collection days are impacted including Boxing Day. Check your curbside calendar or with your local government for details.

In the Town of Princeton, Tuesday to Thursday collection days get bumped one day later over the holidays. They will now run from Wednesday to Friday. Check with the Town of Princeton for details.

All local landfills in the RDOS will be closed for the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day statutory holidays. Check online or contact local government for information on winter and holiday closures at specific landfills.

If you have any questions, please contact the RDOS Solid Waste Department at 250-490-4129, toll-free at 1-877-610-3737 ext. 4129, e-mail info@rdos.bc.ca or visit www.rdos.bc.ca.
