Winter Conditions May Cause Blue Box Service Delay or Disruption

Dec 17, 2008

Victoria, BC – Blue box collection service is proceeding as usual in most areas. However, if winter conditions continue roads may become icy and unsafe for a truck to access. In particular, roads that are steep or narrow may be affected.

In the event of continued snowfall, collection may be cancelled. Residents affected are advised to hold on to their recyclables for two weeks until their next collection day. The CRD would like to thank residents for their understanding and patience.

For the most recent update on blue box service, please contact the CRD Hotline at 250.360.3030, or visit the CRD website.
