All scheduled curbside recycling collection has been cancelled in the Greater Victoria area today Friday December 23 due to unsafe driving conditions in the region.

That was also the case on Tuesday December 20.

“Residents affected are advised to hold their recycling until their next collection day,” says the Capital Regional District (CRD) on their website, while thanking residents for their patience.
