The Remembrance Day holiday next week will push government’s garbage collection schedule back a day, the Ministry of Public Works announced tonight.

A ministry spokesman explained that garbage will not be collected on the holiday, which falls next Wednesday.

Garbage normally collected on Wednesday will be collected next week on Thursday in areas that include Paget east of Chapel Road, from, but not including S Hill and Southcote Road, up to and including Tee Street and Kent Avenue in Devonshire.

Also included are East Broadway, Cavendish Road, and Pembroke west of Blackwatch Pass.

Garbage normally collected on Thursday will be collected next Friday in areas that include Pembroke east of Blackwatch Pass, Devonshire east of Tee Street, and all of Smith’s except the area east of Devil’s Hole Hill.

Garbage normally picked up on Friday will be collected next week on Saturday in areas that include Smith’s east of Devil’s Hole Hill, and all of Hamilton and St George’s except the Olde Towne.

The ministry spokesman said garbage may also be dropped off at the Tynes Bay incinerator, which will be open on Remembrance Day from 9am to noon.
