Residents are asked to leave their recyclables at the curb but the city cautions that they might not be collected.

“If your recycling does not get collected by 7 p.m., please bring it back in,” the city stated on Thursday afternoon.

Recyclable materials not collected Thursday will be collected on the next regular collection day, Thursday, March 5.

“The winter weather makes collection of garbage and recyclables very challenging,” the city stated. “Please make sure that your waste containers are visible. Please ensure your containers are not on top of a snowbank or buried in the snow and are in a location where our collectors can safely reach them.”
