No garbage or recycling pickup today in Vancouver

City staff are being redeployed to clear snow from sidewalks and bus stops

There will no garbage or recycling collection for the second straight day in Vancouver as municipal crews continue to dig the city out of snowmageddon.

Those staffers who’d normally be picking up waste are instead being redeployed to remove snow from sidewalks and bus stops.

Recycle BC has also cancelled recycling collection.

Meanwhile, the portion of seawall between the Lions Gate Bridge and Siwash Rock is closed due to falling ice. The rest of the seawall remains open.

If you’re still feeling frisky, you’ll have to climb the ungodly hill on Stanley Park Drive up to Prospect Point and back down through the west side of the park near Third Beach.

Good luck.

Check for scheduling updates.
