Green carts are back to biweekly collection.

This will be in effect from now until April.

The Town is also reminding residents that as of Jan. 8, 2019, garbage, organics and recycling will be collected Tuesday to Friday as Monday collection days will be eliminated.

This change will impact about 55 per cent of households in Okotoks.

To help stay informed on any collection changes residents are encouraged sign up for reminders by downloading the free Okotoks Waste app.
