Dryden's garbage is collected by a private contractor, B & M Delivery. Call the contractor at 223-3298 to report missed pickups or problems. The City is split into areas, each picked up on a different day. Call the contractor to ask about schedules.
The contractor is only required to pick up garbage which is packaged according to the bylaw, that is standard sized bags or similar sized boxes or bundles, securely tied so that he can easily pick them up and throw them with one hand. Garbage must be placed at curbside, or roadside where there is no curb. The contractor is not required to go out of his way to find garbage. There is no longer back lane pick-up. All garbage will be picked up on the street, winter and summer. During the months of October to the end of April garbage is picked up on a bi-weekly basis. Notice will be placed in the Dryden Observer and on the City website as to the date that bi weekly pick up will begin.
The contractor is not required to pick up broken bags or scattered garbage, although he will generally pick up larger items if a bag is broken. Garbage Bag Tag - Each bag, box or bundle must have a Dryden Bag Tag affixed to it. We recommend tags be placed around the neck of the bag, and stuck to themselves, sticky side to sticky side, to prevent their being removed or falling off. Garbage bag tags may be purchased at the following locations: City of Dryden Business Office, City of Dryden Public Works Office, Canadian Tire Store, Lotto One, Safeway Store, Wilson's Stationary, and IGA. Only household garbage is collected. The contractor is not required to take brush or yard waste, grass, pet feces, ashes, rubbish such a broken furniture or appliances, or tires. There is a City bylaw forbidding putting recyclable material in the garbage.
