Citywide Collection Day Delays

There is not currently a weather related collection day delay in effect.


Occasionally, a major weather event, such as a large snow or ice storm, can affect garbage or recycling collection for a large part of the city. If this occurs, the city may declare a Citywide Collection Day Delay for recycling and/or garbage collection. Snow emergencies may or may not require a Collection Day Delay.

  1. If a Collection Day Delay is declared, keep your recycling and/or garbage out one day later than your usual collection day. For example, if your regular collection day is Wednesday, your recycling and/or garbage will be collected on Thursday that week. This is what also happens when there is a major holiday during the week.
  2. Bad winter weather conditions may impact recycling and garbage operations differently. A Collection Day Delay may be called for either a recycling or garbage collection, or both.
  3. If a Collection Day Delay is declared, the city will post information on this web page and through the city’s social media Facebook and Twitter channels.
