Garbage Collection


In response to COVID-19 the Municipality has transitioned to an essential service approach for Municipal operations. Please be advised of the following changes to curbside collection: 

  • Curbside recycling has been suspended until further notice.
  • Crews will now collect two bins of mixed garbage and recycling per house hold.
  • All materials must be bagged and placed inside of bins (crews will pick up any two bins, regardless of colour).
  • Collection will take place on your regularly scheduled collection day. 

Please place bins 3 ft from vehicles and 1 ft from other bins. 
Bags and extra garbage placed on the ground outside of bins will not be collected.

Curbside Collection - Bin Placement Tips

  • Curbside collection bins must be at the street by 7:30 a.m. on your collection day. Your bins will not be collected if they aren't to the curbside by 7:30 a.m.
  • Ensure bins are on the road side of the windrow. Not on the snow banks.
  • Bins need to be three feet from vehicles, and one foot of space between each bin. See bin placement graphic below for details. Bin there, done that.
  • Brush the snow off your bins when placing them at the curb. Crews can better see your bins, which will help with a smooth collection process.

 These tips will help crews to safely and efficiently collect your bins every week.
