Garbage bag limit doubled for Christmas

Garbage bag limits are doubled for the five collection days after Christmas Day throughout Niagara Region.

As well, collection days are pushed back by one day to allow for the statutory holidays, and there will even be collection on the two Saturdays following Christmas to accommodate the change.

Collection normally scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 25 will take place Wednesday; Wednesday’s collection takes place on Thursday and so on until Saturday.

Collection day on Monday, Dec. 31 will occur normally, with New Year’s collection on Tuesday cancelled to be resumed on Wednesday. Collection for the rest of the week is also pushed back by a day until Saturday.

Households will be allowed to put out one additional bag without a garbage tag until Dec. 31 and the normal one-bag limit goes back into effect Jan. 2.

The Fort Erie depot (formerly known as ‘The Dump’) will be closed Christmas and New Year’s Days.

Most regional offices will be closed Dec. 24, 25, 26, 31 and Jan. 31, including sexual health clinics. However, should any accidental . . . spillage, let’s say . . . happen, emergency contraception can be purchased at any local pharmacy outside of sexual health clinic hours.

Emergency services will operate normally.

Town of Fort Erie offices will be closed starting at noon on Dec. 24 until Dec. 27 when the regular 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. hours resume.

Offices will close early again on Dec. 31 and re-open on Jan. 2.

Fort Erie transit and Niagara transit will be suspended on Dec. 25 and 26 and Jan. 1.
