City of Vancouver, in coordination with Clark County and Waste Connections, strive to keep disruptions to a minimum. If unsafe weather conditions persist, the City/County and garbage hauler will determine if a cancelation is necessary. Our first priority in determining if a cancelation is needed is the safety of our drivers and of our citizens.
If your garbage and recycling collection is canceled due to inclement weather, collection will take place the next day. For example, if your collection is on Wednesday, your pickup will be moved to Thursday. Thursday collection moved to Friday and Friday collection will move to Saturday, weather permitting.
If more than one day of garbage service is canceled in a week, customers of the days canceled should take their waste off the curb and set out double the amount of waste on the following week on your regularly scheduled collection day at no additional charge.
Holiday schedules may also impact changes in collection dates caused by inclement weather. For cancelation updates and related follow-up collection information, please watch the website at www.cityofvancouver.us/solidwaste and/or listen to your local radio and news stations.
