As well, Bermondsey, Ingram and Scarborough depots will be open on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for recycling, garbage, yard waste and household hazardous waste.

People are asked to limit their visits and follow public health guidelines when near others in the facility and the staff. Those guidelines include wearing a face mask or covering if physical distancing cannot be maintained and limiting transactions to debit and credit only. Cash will not be accepted.

Compost pickup will not be available at any depot and all other depots will remain closed.
