Collection Status: Windy Notice for February 25, 2019 Collection

The Bluewater Recycling Association has been monitoring the progress of the weather front currently affecting parts or all of our service area generating excessively high winds. 

We recommend that you hold back your material until your next collection, if possible.  Blue boxes have been known to fly in windy conditions.  While the wheelie bins are designed to withstand winds of up to 70 km/hr, nobody likes to clean up a spilled bin all over the ditches.  Save yourself a headache and consider whether it really needs to be out there in those conditions.  Be careful handling your wheelie bins on windy days as the lid can unexpectedly open and strike you causing considerable pain.

The Bluewater Recycling Association is pleased to report that all of our fleet is out for collection on Monday February 25, 2019.  During our tour we expect to come across a number of bins tipped over.   We will make every reasonable effort to collect all the bins while keeping our people safe.   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Visit and register to receive these types of notices directly to your email or phone.
