The Halifax Regional Municipality would like to remind residents the weekly green cart collection service will end this week. 
 
The service will return to a bi-weekly format beginning on Monday, Oct. 3.
 
HRM says the weekly curbside green cart collection occurs only in July, August and September. 
 
If green cart collection was affected by Hurricane Fiona, HRM asks residents to refer to their area’s extra green cart collection day. 
 
HRM is currently accepting double the tree waste bundles for organic collection, meaning residents may set out 10 tree waste bundles as part of their organics collection. 
 
HRM says tree waste should be tied in armload-size bundles, not exceed 75 pounds and no individual tree can be bigger than eight inches in diameter. 
The municipality will also accept up to 20 bags of yard waste. 
 
HRM would also like to remind residents that collection can begin at 7 a.m. and should have waste or recycling in place before that time.
