If your waste collection day is Wednesday and you live on Prospect Road, don't put out your garbage, organics and recyclables.

HRM says this affects Goodwood, Hatchet Lake, Brookside, Whites Lake, Prospect Bay, and Terence Bay.

"A supplemental green cart collection (and double the garbage bag limits) for this area will occur on Wednesday, October 12," the municipality said in a news release. "As per the normal schedule, all other areas will receive regular curbside collection of solid waste on Wednesday, September 28."

And if you live elsewhere and the trucks can't get down your street, your garbage won't be collected either.

We're currently allowed to put out twice the amount of tree waste bundles for organics collection. 

"Residents may set out 10 tree waste bundles as part of their organics collection" HRM said. "Tree waste should be tied in armload-sized bundles."

"No bundle can exceed 75 pounds and no individual piece can be more than four feet long or larger than eight inches in diameter. Up to 20 paper bags of yard waste will also be accepted."
