Cranbrook, BC (June 21, 2022) – The safety and well-being of our staff working to provide important services to our residents and businesses in the City of Cranbrook is paramount in our operations.
Garbage collection is one of our core services and requires repetitive and often heavy lifting by our collection team. For safety and to reduce the risk of injury there are a few things residents can do to help.
Keeping the area around where you place your garbage containers for collection clear of obstructions or tripping hazards is important.
You should also make sure that plastic garbage bags are securely closed at the top and are strong enough to withstand normal handling and lifting by our collection team. Bags or containers must also not weigh more than 20 kilograms (44 lbs.) each. We also ask that you ensure there is no loose garbage or open bags left out on your collection day.
