HRM encourages students moving to check collection schedules

Monday, April 16, 2012 - Many university students will be packing up and moving out this month. HRM reminds students to check their curbside garbage and recycling collection schedules and to only place acceptable materials at the curb. The garbage limit for apartment buildings with six units or less is five bags per unit, plus two bulky items on each garbage collection day. There is no limit on blue bag or paper recyclables.

If you have usable furniture you don't need, Halifax's largest annual garage sale "Dump & Run" will be taking place on April 29 at the Dalhousie Studley Gymnasium from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. The organizers can be contacted via Facebook (search Halifax Dump and Run 2012) or Twitter: @HalifaxDumpNRun for details or to arrange making a donation.

For alternative options for unused items, please visit: and for more information on recycling and composting, visit: or call 490-4000.
