What if I have too much for my cart?

  • GARBAGE: For occasional extra garbage, please use the Tag-a-Bag program and place the additional bags 1 metre away from carts. Please ensure each bag of garbage possesses a city issued tag and does not exceed 50 lbs. Tags are available for purchase at City Hall and local community centres. Please do not overfill your carts. If you’re finding you have extra garbage regularly, and you have utilized every opportunity to recycle all your recyclable materials, you may wish to consider upsizing your cart. Please contact Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691. Additional charges apply.
  • YARD & FOOD SCRAPS: For extra greens, please use kraft paper bags (no tags required) and group bags 1 metre away from the carts. Please ensure that each kraft paper bag does not exceed 50 lbs.
    During the fall season, please do not rake leaves onto the roadway.
    If you have any extra large pick up of leaves (10 bags or more) – No problem! – Just phone in advance to Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691.
  • RECYCLING: For occasional additional recycling, the City urges residents to utilize the Recycling Depot located at 65 East 6th Ave (open Wed – Sun, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm). Please note that all items must be sorted at the Recycling Depot.
    If your household contains a secondary suite and one single-stream recycling container is not enough for your needs, please contact Engineering Operations at
