Revelstoke releases new garbage map and schedule

New City of Revelstoke garbage schedule divides into four zones, with pickup Tuesday to Friday.

The City of Revelstoke's new garbage map divides the city into four zones.

The City of Revelstoke has released its new garbage schedule and collection map, which divides the city into four zones, instead of the current five.

The schedule is set to be voted on by council on Tuesday, Dec. 22, and if approved, it will go into effect on February 1, 2016.

Under the new system, the existing rotating schedule will be dumped and garbage collection will happen Tuesday through Friday.

Residents of Arrow Heights and the section of Southside east of Edward Street and south of Fourth street, will have pickup on Tuesday.

The rest of Southside and the portion of Central Revelstoke west of Fourth Street will have pickup on Wednesday.

Columbia Park, CPR Hill and Johnson Heights will have garbage pickup on Thursday.

The Big Eddy, Farwell and the rest of the Central Revelstoke will have garbage pickup on Friday.

Garbage collection will take place on holidays.

The new bylaw will also impact how garbage is collected from multi-family buildings. Under the new rules, buildings with more than four units will be required to contract out their own garbage collection.

The city is also reducing the amount of garbage that will be collected. Residents will be allowed to put out one garbage bin, while extras will require tags, which will cost $3, up from the current $2.
