Feb 15, 2011

Victoria, BC - Severe weather in the Capital Region has forced the delay and cancellation of Blue Box recycling pickup today, Wednesday, February 23rd. Today is Blue Wednesday and collection regularly takes place in the downtown core area, extending to Hillside, Finlayson and Foul Bay Road and in Oak Bay. Collection from major roads will be attempted if accessible. If curbside recycling is not collected residents are advised to hold on to their recyclables until their next collection day.
