Garbage day in Esquimalt coincides with annual food drive

Putting out the trash never felt so good.

Esquimalt garbage collectors will be picking up non-perishable food donations placed in a bag labelled "food drive" beside trash cans.

The township's 12th annual Christmas Food Drive happens Dec. 12 to 22, coinciding with the regular garbage collection schedule, in support of Esquimalt Neighbourhood House. The social service agency provides emergency meals for Esquimalt residents, among other programs and services.

Food donations can also be dropped off at municipal hall at 1229 Esquimalt Rd. or the public works yard, 602 Canteen Rd. during the same week.
