Collection Schedule App

Switch your app! Recycle Coach replaces My Waste

My Waste app users are encouraged to download the app Recycle Coach. Recycle Coach is from the same company (Municipal Media Inc.), and Burnaby residents will continue to receive the exact same information and reminders for curbside garbage, recycling and green bin collection.

Due to changes to Apple's App Store Guidelines, the My Waste app is being phased out as of June 2019. Apple's new guidelines prevent a company from having multiple apps in the app store with the same functionality. This change affects tens of thousands of apps.

For more information, see our FAQ.

The Recycle Coach app is available for iOS or Android devices.

Never miss a collection day again!

Download the City of Burnaby's collection app for iOS and Android devices to get instant access to your garbage, recycling and green bin information.

Burnaby's Collection App allows you to:

  • Set up collection day reminders for residential curbside collection schedules.
  • Identify materials accepted for residential recycling, green bin or garbage program.
  • Locate drop off depots using the "What goes where?" searchable database. 
  • Report missed collection, graffiti, street light outages and more using the "Report a Problem" feature. 

Please note: Residents of multi-family buildings serviced by the City can call 604-294-7972 or email for collection information.
