Cornwall Ontario (Cornwall.ca) — The following is a reminder from the City of Cornwall. Setting the garbage and recycling out for collection requires special consideration during the winter.
Residents are asked to please keep the following rules in mind:
– Do not place garbage bags or blue box materials on top of snow banks.
– Clear snow to ground level at the end of your driveway or near the curb where garbage and blue box materials are to be placed for collection.
– During winter weather conditions, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to expose and loosen garbage & recyclables covered by snow or blocked by snow removal equipment.
The City of Cornwall thanks all residents for their cooperation.
Reminder – Christmas Tree Collection
Christmas trees will be collected separately during the period of January 5 to January 16.
Please place the tree at the curb on your regular collection day for collection by a separate truck.
Be sure to remove all tinsel, ornaments, plastic bags and tree stands. Christmas trees buried in a snowbank will not be collected.
