NewsBI-WEEKLY WASTE PICKUP SCHEDULE MODIFIED SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Wednesday, Oct. 19th, 2016Don’t get used to the current garbage pickup schedule in Cochrane because some changes are in store for the end of the month. The town has decided to go ahead with a bi-weekly pickup schedule to save on costs over the winter months and encourage residents to recycle more. To accommodate the extra trash during the holiday season, garbage will be picked up every week around Christmas and New Years. This is a trial program and the Operations and Infrastructure Department will be reporting back to council on a monthly basis to determine how effective it is. Bi-weekly garbage pickups will start on Monday October 31st and run until the end of March. See HERE for the latest schedule.
