City Of Windsor Stresses That Social Distancing Applies To Garbage Collection Too

Garbage and recycling collection will continue, but Windsor residents are being asked to respect the social distancing recommendations of health officials and stay at least two metres away from garbage and recycling workers.

The City’s collection contractor, GFL is reporting that drivers are being approached for conversation and with offers to help load items in.

“While the sentiment is appreciated, please remember that the need for social distancing is vital. Please do not approach GFL staff who are working to keep our city clean,” the city said in a news release.

Many residents are also taking advantage of the time at home for spring cleaning. The city says that all garbage requirements remain the same: garbage must be in hard sided containers and must weigh no more than 20kg (44lbs); pails are not to be overfilled; and loose garbage should not be placed in pails.
