Watch Your Mailbox For 2023 Calendar – Download Sort/Report App
Port Coquitlam’s natural beauty, captured by local photographers, is featured once again in the 2023 City calendar that will start arriving in mailboxes in the first week of December.
The City’s annual calendar will be mailed directly to all Port Coquitlam households and businesses. Entitled Naturally PoCo, the scenic calendar includes:
- Information about city events, services and meetings.
- Waste collection schedule in the monthly calendars.
- Space in the monthly calendars for writing personal schedules.
Highlighted throughout the calendar are striking photos of Port Coquitlam flowers, wildlife and landscapes, submitted by community shutterbugs following a call for photos. Over 700 photos were received, many of which will be used in City publications and have been posted at portcoquitlam.ca/photos.
Residents are also encouraged to use the City’s free Sort & Report app. A one-stop resource with a wide variety of uses. Sort waste on the go, report problems, get collection alerts and more. The app can be downloaded for free at portcoquitlam.ca/sortreport to see your collection schedule, set reminders, report problems and use the search tool.
Proper waste-sorting is a prevalent theme throughout the calendar, as the City launched a new campaign asking residents and businesses not to “wishcycle” as it seeks to avoid significant fines for mis-sorted waste and soiled recyclables. When one wishcycles, more goes to the landﬁll. Tips on how to Sort it Right! are on each month’s page, to help residents understand what goes – and doesn’t go – into their waste carts.
Residents can submit high-resolution images of Port Coquitlam landscapes, flowers and wildlife to portcoquitlam.ca/photos for a chance to see them featured in the 2024 community calendar, lining local streets or displayed at City facilities next year.
The calendars are being delivered in 100% biodegradable plastic bags, and were printed on FSC-certified paper with at least 10% post-consumer recycled content.
