Spring has sprung and gardening season isn't far behind.

Conveniently coinciding with the return to yard work is the weekly organics collection around town. 

According to the Town of Cochrane, effective today, Monday, April 4 Cochranites can place their green bins out for pick up on a weekly basis.

Cochranites won't need to regularly check the organics schedule for the next seven months, since having a weekly collection will make it easier to stay on track during the spring and summer.

There are some options available to help residents keep track of their schedules all year long, including signing up for reminders by text or email.

Residents can also consult the town's collection calendar here.
