Progressive Waste experienced a breakdown with one of their trucks which resulted in a delay in garbage pick-up in Selkirk. Another truck has since been brought in and crews are working hard to get back on schedule.
As of late afternoon on Thursday June 16th, all of the recycling has been picked up throughout the city. Both garbage and recycling have all been cleaned up on every street east of Main with the exception the 200 block of Pacific Ave. Pacific Ave. will be completed on Friday June 17th.
On June 17th, two trucks will begin garbage pick-up in the north end of the city working their way south. The expectation is that everything will be picked up prior to the weekend.
Progressive will also be picking up any additional bags containing grass clippings and debris from last weeks’ flood event. City crews have also started flood clean up.
If your garbage or recycling is missed, please wait until Monday June 20th to inquire. Progressive will be making one last round on Sunday June 19th to ensure anything missed is picked up.
