    I think Torbay should go back to clean up week when you were able to put your garbage on the side off the road and it was picked from there. There are a lot of people like myself that do not have a truck and have no way to get it to your requested location. Therefore we just let the junk pile up.

      Thank you for your suggestion, it has been forwarded to the Director of Infrastructure and Public Works. The Town of Torbay has been providing a bulk garbage drop for its residents for more than 20 years now with great success. With the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, Torbay Town Council again approved this proven format with additional safeguards for our staff and residents. In the past we have provided individual curbside pickups but with the current circumstances it was agreed that this would not be a service we will offer at this time. Stay tuned for a possible bulk garbage pickup again early in the Fall.

        When will the next residential pickup for recyclables be started up again?
