Temporary Service Interruption: Bottle Pick-Up

 

Due to the continued impacts of COVID-19 and the related mandates, Vecova’s Bottle Pick-Up Service is currently experiencing temporary service interruptions, impacting our pick-up schedule.

 

Service will resume to its normal frequency on September 27, 2021. You will be contacted by email for further details regarding your new next pick-up date. If you require a new pick-up date at that time, or have any further questions, please contact us at recycle@vecova.ca or 403-267-1240.

 

The health and safety of our drivers and community is our priority. We are currently following all of the recommended public health emergency mandates, including masking protocols, vehicle sanitation, and practicing social distancing.
