Extra pickup possible in PoCo
Extra garbage pickup is being offered to Port Coquitlam residents the next two weeks to assist with longer waits between collection days due to statutory Christmas holidays.
Additional collection days have been added between Christmas and Jan. 7, and residents who phone the city’s operations centre can receive an added pickup.
But those who would like to take advantage of the service must make sure their waste is sorted correctly.
All food scraps, soiled papers and yard trimmings must be put in green carts while clean paper (including wrapping paper), plastic and tins must be in the blue carts. According to the city, drivers will be checking bins to ensure waste is sorted correctly before picking up the carts.
Those PoCo residents interested in receiving additional waste pickup over the holidays should call 604-927-5496. For more information about sorting waste, go to www.portcoquitlam.ca/wasteloss.
