The City of Chestermere is preparing for changes to recycling, waste and organics collections for one-quarter of all households in the City starting March 14, 2022.
All residents are encouraged to check chestermere.ca/recycle to confirm their curbside cart collection day.
There will be no reduction to cart collection services households receive. However, the day on which carts are collected will change for affected households.
These changes are about improving the reliability and consistency of service for every household. The growth of the City has led to a heavier workload in some areas, making it difficult for the crews to collect all the carts in those areas on the scheduled day.
The new routes have been planned to ensure crews can collect from each household as efficiently as possible. This update focuses on providing service to 6,899 existing households and includes space for an additional 1,500 new households expected to be built in Chestermere over the next 3 years. As the city grows, there may be changes to your collection day again in future years.
The City recognizes changing collection days is inconvenient for residents, but thanks everyone for their commitment to keeping Chestermere clean and safe.
