Call Centre Holiday Closures

(June 24, 2010) - Please be advised that as of this coming July 1 - Canada Day, the HRM Call Centre (490-4000) will no longer be open on holidays. On those days, callers will instead have access to the following limited automated selection: holiday transit info., solid waste collection, Canada Day events, and parking ticket payment. Only issues of an urgent nature related to Public Works, Waste Water or Animal Control will be responded to. In addition to the automated information, callers will also be directed to the HRM website, at where they’ll have access to information on a full range of HRM services and events - including details on holiday-related activities.

Holiday closures were among a variety of cost-saving measures included in the 2010-11 HRM budget. Normal open HRM Call Centre hours are 7 am - 11 pm, seven days a week. The call centre will resume normal open hours on Friday, July 2.
