Ridge Meadows Recycling Society’s Fall chipping program is back

Maple Ridge residents get two October dates depending on their area

Ridge Meadows Recycling Society’s Fall brush program is back this October for residents of Maple Ridge.

The society’s spring and fall program is in collaboration with the city of Maple Ridge and is set for two dates in October — on Oct. 12 for residents west of 225th Street and Oct. 25 for residents east of 224th Street.

According to the society, the brush will need to be set out by the deadline for it to be picked up in time. The amount of brush set out and the number of residents using the program, will determine the days spent on each area. The chipping in each area will take up to two weeks to complete.
