Electoral Area B Curbside Collection

Curbside Collection Update

GFL, the contractor responsible for garbage and recycling collection in Dogwood Valley, is aware of some residences that were omitted from garbage pickup in the last couple of weeks. Weather and road conditions permitting, all garbage will be collected this Thursday and those that were missed will be permitted to do a “double pickup” at no charge.  Any further questions should be directed to GFL at 604-823-2116.
