The city has temporarily waived garbage bag limits for Hamilton households whose waste pickup was missed or cancelled this week.

Collection didn’t occur in some part of the city on between Jan. 6 and 8 because of extreme cold temperatures.

Affected residents should put out their garbage, recycling and green bin materials on the normal collection day, the city says.

The bag-limit exemption will last from Monday until Wednesday.

The city reminds residents that crews will still be collecting Christmas trees during the week of Jan. 13.
