Construction update Summer 2021

Summer has arrived, and our construction team is hard at work installing sanitary sewers on Alexandra Avenue. Temporary water systems have been in place since early June and we have two crews working concurrently to keep our production up and work diligently to meet our construction schedule. Access has been maintained, though undoubtedly affected in small ways, so we appreciate your continued patience and support during this construction season.

As we continue through the year, waste management will be something residents and the construction team will need to work together on to ensure complete and timely removal of waste. Please see the Waste Collection During Construction flyer from the Region of Waterloo for tips on green bin, recycling and garbage collection during a road construction project. Tips include:

  • Waste is to be placed curbside by 6am on the morning of waste pickup during construction rather than the usual 7am.
  • It is extra important to make sure bags are used in place of bins for garbage and that recycling and organic bins are not overflowing. Bins are collected by the construction crews and relocated to a central location, so overflowing bins and loose items can be very challenging to transport and properly have picked up.
  • Contractor waste bins are not for public use, so please continue to utilize your normal waste bins and yard waste bags for waste disposal.
  • Ensure all bins are very clearly labeled with your street address to ensure your bins are returned at the end of the day.
  • Please note and adhere to the prohibited items on the flyer for the safety of our construction crews and waste management teams.

Thanks again for your cooperation – everyone has been great so far and we really appreciate it!
