SUMMERSIDE — With the holidays comes longer waits, for some Islanders, for roadside waste and compost collection.

Anyone who would have normally been on the collection schedule on Christmas Day, an alternative collection day is slated for Saturday.

Islanders whose scheduled collection day is next Tuesday, which is New Year’s Day, collection will take place on Saturday, Jan. 5.

Christmas trees must be curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 7, for collection by the Island Waste Management Corporation.

Drivers will be collecting tress that day but do have the week to complete all routes.

Trees may be taken to any of the waste watch drop-off centres across the Island free of charge. Those locations, which include Brockton and New London in Prince County — will be open regular hours, including on Dec. 31.

The East Prince Waste Management facility in Wellington is open regular hours, including on New Year’s Eve but will be closed Jan. 1.

For more information, contact 1-888-280-8111 or visit www.iwmc.pe.ca.

    I'm a little confused about the scheduled tree pick up, because our tree from LAST year STILL hasn't been picked up!! :)

      Obviously the editor read the comments and fixed this. Do you really think that many people would have read it incorrectly? We are not talking about driving drunk here!

    I believe this is a misprint Tuesday is New Years Day.
