Garbage & Recycling

If your regular collection date is not shown on the Collection Calendar due to a Statuatory Holiday, pickup will be made the next business day.

The collection contractor is only required to pick up waste prepared according to the following By-law No. 2564-98 guidelines:

  • Items drained of all liquids
  • Waste securely bundled for easy pick-up with one hand
  • Bundles and bags not to exceed 15 kg in weight
  • Waste placed at the curbside or road edge (all pick-ups are on the street side, there is no back lane pick-up)
  • Recyclable materials placed in the Blue Box
  • All bags have a bag tag

Please note that waste left for curbside pickup that does not follow the guidelines of the by-law may be rejected by the contractor.

Please note that only household garbage is collected. The contractor is not required to take:

  • Brush or yard waste
  • Grass
  • Pet feces
  • Ashes
  • Rubbish (e.g., broken furniture or appliances)
  • Tires
  • Bags with tampered bag tags

If you have items not accepted by curbside pickup or you missed your pickup day, you can take your waste to the Highway 502 Landfill Site.
