Garbage and Recycling

Glass Collection IS HERE!

The City has introduced a residential glass collection program. 

Your new grey box accepts non-refundable glass packaging (jam jars, sauce jars, pickle jars, etc.) This program will help prevent broken glass packaging from contaminating other recycling materials. Find more information here


  • Cart Placement for Pick-Up

    Ensure that your carts are placed correctly for pick-up.

    1. Place it
    Carts should be at the curb for pick-up no later than 7:00 am on collection day. Please do not leave your carts out overnight.

    2. Park it
    Place wheels against curb.

    3. Point it
    Make sure arrows on the lids are pointing towards the centre of the street.

    4. Space it
    Leave at least an arm's length between the carts and other objects (e.g. parked cars, fences, telephone poles, etc.) and 3 metres of clearance above for overhangs and tree branches.

    Park the carts at least 1 metre away from any wall/fence. The lift needs at least a 1/2 metre to pick up the cart.

    Carts placed side-by-side, or too close together, may not be collected.

  • What if my carts weren't collected?

    Please leave your carts out until the end of collection day (7:00 pm) BEFORE calling Engineering Operations to report a missed or tagged collection cart. 

    There is no guarantee your carts will be collected if you call more than 48 hours after your regularly scheduled collection day.

    Why were my bins tagged?

    If you have questions about why you received a tag or what are acceptable materials for your cart, please contact Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691.
