Beginning Monday, May 31, 2021 Muskoka crews will begin curbside collection at 7 am.
According to the District of Muskoka, they are working closely with their contractor to find better and more efficient ways of getting waste collected. They are asking residents that on collection day, they set materials at the curb for 7 am.
It has become necessary for crews to begin earlier as we are managing more garbage and recycling each week and more time is needed daily to complete routes, said the District in a recent press release. It is less busy in the early morning and drivers won’t need to compete with traffic and parked cars in our urban areas. An early start will also help on hot weather days, says the District, as drivers collect garbage manually and it’s cooler in the morning to get a head-start on their day.
