Some areas of Strathmore faced a setback in routine garbage collection due to severe winds.

Residents in Hillview, Strathaven/Strathcona, and Lakewood didn't have their garbage picked up on Tuesday (May 7). Authorities attribute the disruption to the intense gusts sweeping through the region.

In response to the missed pickups, the Town of Strathmore announced plans to address the issue. Residents are advised to gather any excess garbage bags and place them out for collection on Tuesday, May 14. 

"Residents are to put any extra garbage bags next to their black carts at the regular collection location by 7:00 a.m.," the town said on its Facebook page.
