Important Notice Regarding Change to Garbage and Recycling Collection

Posted on Friday July 13, 2018

Residents of South Glengarry who have recently received their annual Recycling and Garbage Collection Calendar will notice an unexpected change to their collection weeks.

Due to an error during the production of the calendar, the weekly colour scheme was not carried forward properly and as a result, the weeks that residents typically have their garbage and recycling picked up has now switched to the opposite weeks. The day of the week that your collection takes place will not be affected by this change.

“The Township sincerely apologizes for this error and the confusion that will arise as a result,” stated Ewen MacDonald, General Manager of Infrastructure Services, “This is an unfortunate oversight that will require some adjustment and we appreciate your understanding through the transition.”

The change to collection weeks will be effective beginning the first week of August. Residents are encouraged to review the Collection Calendar to confirm the weeks that their collection will take place on a go-forward basis. Copies of the Collection Calendar are available, free of charge, at the Township of South Glengarry office located at 6 Oak Street, Lancaster or on our website.
