The Municipality’s Solid Waste Services branch has been replacing its semi-automated collection fleet with 19 fully-automated collection trucks. The addition of these trucks has led to an increase in efficiencies within the curbside collection process and because of this, a change to the curbside collection schedule is needed to redistribute workload evenly throughout the week.

Curbside collection includes the pick-up of household waste, recycling and yard waste. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the recycling program is temporarily on hold until further notice. The Solid Waste Services branch is working on a plan for the resumption of this service. Please check rmwb.ca/garbage for updates.

At this time, residents are asked to combine waste and recyclables together in bags, and place inside of the black and light blue collection bins. Crews will pick up two bins of mixed garbage and recycling per week.

Crews will also be collecting one bin of yard waste per week. Residents are asked to place yard waste inside of the dark blue collection bin.
