Why Saturday collection?

The CVRD’s curbside collection program has been experiencing significant disruptions over the past several months due to ongoing mechanical failures in our ageing collection fleet. While two new curbside trucks have been ordered, they will not arrive until 2024 due to supply chain issues. Adding a Saturday collection day allows older trucks to have more repair and maintenance time, which will make it easier to stay ahead of breakdowns and restore levels of service until the new trucks arrive.
