Windsor - Mar. 24, 2020:
Windsor residents are being asked to respect the social distancing recommendations of health officials and please stay at least 2 metres away from garbage and recycling workers.

The City’s collection contractor, GFL is reporting that drivers are being approached for conversation and with offers to help load items in. While the sentiment is appreciated, please remember that the need for social distancing is vital. Please do not approach GFL staff who are working to keep our city clean.

Many residents are also taking advantage of the time at home for spring cleaning. Please note that all garbage requirements remain the same: garbage must be in hard sided containers and must weigh no more than 20kg (44lbs); pails are not to be overfilled; and loose garbage should not be placed in pails.

If anyone has been missed during collection, please call 311, as we are still taking calls and still investigating uncollected stops.

We are happy to continue to collect garbage and recycling, but in order to do so, we need everyone to respect the distancing and adhere to the bylaws.

Parking Enforcement:
Parking enforcement has been relaxed at on-street metres, but designated accessible spaces still require proper permits. Enforcement continues in parking lots, and emergency access must always be maintained. Complaints and abuse will continue to be investigated and enforced.

Volunteers:
We have received requests from residents offering to help where needed. While we appreciate the sense of civic duty that drive our community members to reach out and offer to volunteer their services, we request that people keep safe and continue to maintain social distancing practices at this time to help stop the spread of this pandemic. Should a call for volunteers be needed, we will reach out to the community through our regular channels of news media, social media and our City website. For those wanting to help the community during these challenging times, donations to a local charity such as a local foodbank would be appreciated.
