The city shut down a lot of its facilities but the Region has decided they will ensure that essential services remain open on February 2, 2015 despite winter storm conditions.

Administrative buildings are open, but with minimal staffing. However, due to the reduced visibility and hazardous travelling conditions resulting from the winter storm, Halton Region has suspended several services including waste collection services scheduled for February 2, 2015 in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville.

All waste collection services in Halton Region will be postponed one day for remainder of the week, including regularly scheduled collection for Friday, February 6, 2015, which will now happen on Saturday, February 7.

Residents in any areas who did not receive collection on Monday, February 2, are asked to remove their Blue Box, GreenCart and garbage material from the curb and place back at the curb, no later than 7:00 a.m., on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 for collection.

There are some exceptions:

Our Regional Councillors will do almost anything for a photo-op; this time they are showing you the new 2 gallon blue boxes.

• Regional Clerk’s Office
