Greater Victoria residents who use blue box recycling may remember the waiting game from earlier this year.
Over the summer the Capital Regional District curbside recycling program saw some staffing struggles, with residents waiting patiently for pickup.
Those challenges return this month with staffing shortages at Emterra Environmental, the contractor responsible for CRD collection.
A CRD note issued Monday and updated Tuesday, said delays are expected over the week with Emterra attempting to complete missed collections the following day.
Residents who don’t see recycling picked up by 9 p.m. on their scheduled day should leave materials on the curb. If the items are not picked up by the end of the next day, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the address.
