One bag or equivalent, no larger than 90cm x 127cm (35" x 55") and no heavier than 25kg (55 lbs) can be placed at the curb for collection, as per the Waste Management Bylaw.
Residents are welcome to purchase a container to store and set out waste. The container size cannot exceed 120L and waste cannot be loose.
If you live in a cul-de-sac, on collection day please place your cart or garbage bag two meters off the curb of the street. This allows for the truck to have better access for collection. In some neighbourhoods, neighbours have gotten together and placed all their carts in a row together (ensuring there is one meter in between carts) in front of one agreed on house.
We are continuously growing and learning about cart and garbage bag placement and collection issues in cul-de-sacs from other municipalities who are also addressing these challenges.
If you are experiencing challenges with cart collection or placement, please . Staff will assist residents to determine a solution for successful curbside pick up.
