Heat Causes Garbage Collection Issues

The District of Muskoka says that some waste collection routes were not completed last week due to extreme heat. This made conditions unsafe for Waste Connections Canada staff to complete these routes in full, despite working late into the evening.

Residents with curbside collection concerns are being advised to contact Waste Connections Canada directly at: 705.645.4453.  

The District is working with Waste Connections Canada to avoid similar situations in the future and improve communication to the public.  Residents are encouraged to sign up for online service alerts at
