The City of White Rock has reached a tentative agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 402-01. The comprehensive 11 –page proposal was presented and ratified by Union members. Council meets on Monday 2 June to review and ratify the agreement. 

City Services will resume services on Tuesday 3 June. We appreciate residents and businesses patience as we reintroduce full services.

Resumption of Services

We will re-open all facilities and services counters during regular hours: Community Centre, Centennial Arena, Kent Street Activity Centre, and Operations and Engineering Facilities.

Garbage, Recycling and Green Waste

We will also resume garbage, recycling and green waste programs.

For the first two weeks of regular curb-side collection, householders will be able to put out additional garbage, recycling and green waste. No tags will be needed for overflow garbage. This will be in effect for two weeks only following service resumption.

On your regularly scheduled pick-up day, please leave materials at the curb until collected. Crews may be delayed in their routes.

Commercial garbage will be picked up on Tuesday 3 June. Commercial recycling will resume next week.

For latest updates, we would recommend signing up for our Recollect service. Access it on our Garbage and Recycling page under 'collection and schedule reminders.'

All Leisure classes, programs and events will resume as of Tuesday 3 June. If you would like to register for a summer program, in-person and by phone registration will be available. As always, you can register online at webreg.whiterockcity.ca

The City will resume service to the maintenance of parks, fields and arena. All facility rentals will be honoured and individuals may make new bookings.

Classes suspended due to job action will be immediately credited to an individual's account. If you would like a refund, please contact Leisure Services as of 3 June.
