Coquitlam hosts 'garbage' workshops

Confused about the new garbage collection in Coquitlam?

The city will host two information sessions this and next week to help residents who get the curbside pick-up for trash and green waste.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions — and offer tips — about how and when garbage and organics are picked up in your area.

The workshops are on:

• Thursday, July 17 at 10 a.m. at Glen Pine Pavilion at 1200 Glen Pine Crt. (barcode 477320)

• and Monday, July 21 at 10 a.m. at Dogwood Pavilion at 624 Poirier St. (barcode 477782)

Advance registration for the free courses is requested. To RSVP, call 604-927-4386, go online at coquitlam.ca/signmeup or visit any recreation civic facility.
