Staff shortages tied to the CRD may mean your recycling pickup will be delayed


The Capital Regional District (CRD) put out a notice on Tuesday afternoon warning of staff shortages that may impact services.

The service disruption caused by the shortage will likely result in delays with recycling pickup in certain areas of the CRD.

Emterra Environmental is the contractor employed by the CRD for curb-side recycling disposal. 

According to Emterra, the delays should only last for the coming week and the contractor will attempt to complete any missed collections the day following their scheduled pickup.

The CRD advised if your recycling is not picked up by 9 p.m. on your scheduled day, just leave the materials at the curb.

If your recycling still isn’t picked up on the day following your scheduled pickup day, Emterra recommends you email them your address.

The CRD has more information on their website about recycling pickup.
