Update on Garbage Bin Delivery in Ward 14

The following is an update of the Garbage Bin delivery for Wards 13, 14 and 18 (areas west of Dufferin Street, south of Bloor Street West to the Humber River).

Solid Waste Management is advising that a number of residents who ordered the Medium-size Garbage Bin will not have these bins delivered prior to November 1, 2008 (the start date for the Solid Waste fees). Due to the high number of residents City-wide who chose this size, they will not be able to produce them in time for delivery by November 1st.

Residents who do not have their bins will be receiving a supply of temporary pink garbage bag tags to use until the Garbage Bins are delivered. These temporary bag tags will be mailed via Canada Post to affected residents this week. The 10 bag tags can be used until the new Garbage Bin is delivered. Solid Waste Management has advised me to anticipate that these Garbage Bins will be delivered prior to November 30, 2008.
