Bin Pickup Times

With the recent passing of the Waste Bylaw amendment, the DRCA requested that bins in Discovery Ridge not be picked up before 9:00 am versus the current 7:00 am time to give residents more time to get the bins out to the curb in the mornings.

The City has now advised that, on a pilot basis, while the Wildlife Affected Area designation on Discovery Ridge is in effect, bins will not be collected before 9:00 am. This is effective immediately.

The City states, “We heard the DRCA’s and other resident’s concerns about the impact of not being able to put out carts the night before and want to support Discovery Ridge residents to reduce the potential for human/bear conflicts by following the Bear Smart residential waste best practices.” 
The DRCA will review this with the City near the end of the pilot to discuss permanent implementation pros and cons.
