Just a reminder — changes are coming Monday to Brandon’s garbage and recycling program.
The most notable change is the switch from a five-day collection cycle to a four-day cycle, from Tuesday through Friday of each week. That means that starting on Tuesday, residents will see their refuse and recycling bins picked up on the same day of the week, every week. The change also provides for two extra collection days each year.
A full-colour map of the new four-day refuse and recycling collection schedule can be viewed at brandon.ca/ departments/operations/ sanitation/2012-schedule-map.
Beginning on Monday, the city will also require residents with back lane pickup to store the bins assigned to them on their property on non-collection days. Residents must place their bin in the back laneway no more than 12 hours prior to collection day and must return the bins to their property no more than 24 hours after being emptied on collection day.
