All crews are out in the collection zone. Main roads are good however most side streets are very icy due to the cold conditions which is slowing down collection times. Hopefully the sun will warm things up and melt some ice.
The following roads have been pushed for collection later today:
The biggest area affected so far is 68 Ave to 70 Ave from 196 St to 200 St. So far that is preventing recycling and green cart collection in that area.
Labointe St– dead end on west side off Glover affects only recycling.
48A Ave – 4 calls in the 21700 block ( steep dead end ) only recycling affected so far.
201 St ( lane ) from 69 Ave to 70 Ave Green cart
19938 70 Ave Summerhill – 11 units.
8200 Blk of 197 St – 8 homes
7800 and 7900 Blk of 199 St – 6 homes
19900 Blk of 78B Ave – 4 homes
21200 to 21600 Blk of 78 Ave – 22 homes

22020 49 Ave Murray Green – we pull out the toters and the ramp was too slippery to walk on.
22015 48 Ave Autumn Green – another where we pull out toters and the ramp is a sheet of ice.
19900 Blk 78B Ave – 4 homes
19600 Blk of 78 Ave – 2 homes
19600 and 19700 Blk 84 Ave – 7 homes
8200 Blk 196 St – 3 calls

As well, please note that due to the drop in temperature last night and over the weekend, materials contained in the Green Carts may be frozen and won’t dislodge inside the cart. Crews will try their best to collect all materials. Any materials that are frozen will be collected on next collection day when these become thawed out.
