No alternative date available for carts as this coming Saturday set aside for New Years Day customers
Garbage pick up is cancelled for today in West and East Prince.
Island Waste Management Corporation says on its web site that weather conditions are such that it will not be picking up black carts in West Prince today, nor green carts for East Prince, or blue bags either.
There will be an alternative for blue bags only. The ones set for today will be picked up tomorrow, Tuesday.
The corporation is taking a stronger stand on carts for Prince county.
Hold on for the next round of collection, it's saying.
"There is no alternate collection for carts," says IWMC. "Next Saturday. Jan. 2, has already been scheduled for New Year's Day and there are no other options for the alternate storm day.
"If your cart has reached capacity, please use open rigid containers for excess material. Customers may also use paper yard & garden bags for compostables and clear, transparent plastic bags for excess waste and place these beside the appropriate cart for the next collection."
