In the event of hazardous road conditions due to snow and ice, it may be necessary to suspend garbage, recycling, Green Can and yard trimmings collection in some or all parts of the North Shore.
If your garbage and recycling is normally collected from the street, do not place your materials on the road. Keep them on the sidewalk or boulevard and remove them as soon as possible after they have been emptied.
The GardenSmart Workshop Series demonstrates sustainable gardening techniques that help North Shore Residents reduce waste, support our local ecology and grow their own food.
There is a $8.25 charge per workshop. This minimal charge will help the Edible Garden Project and the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre continue their valuable work in our community.
