High Streamflow Advisory: Fraser River

Updated May 18, 2018

The River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the Fraser River due to increased snow melt. River levels are rising and are expected to continue to rise, creating surging and faster flowing water over the long weekend and through to later next week.

City staff are monitoring water levels, conducting daily patrols of areas adjacent to the Fraser River, and are prepared for possible minor flooding as part of our Flood Response Plan »

Multi-Family Food Scraps Recycling

Multi-Family Food Scraps Recycling Program is here!

The City of Burnaby has expanded our single and two-family food scraps collection program to Multi-Family complexes that currently receive City garbage and recycling service.

Multi-Family Program Details

  • Complexes must currently receive City garbage and recycling service.
  • Participation must be approved by complex strata, co-op boards or, in privately owned complexes, the complex owner.
  • Complexes will provide the City with a on-site complex contact person.
  • Complexes will receive 240-litre Green Bin(s) based on the number of units in the complex (rental charges for Green Bins may apply).
  • Green Bins are collected weekly by the City and must be placed out at an approved pick up location on collection day.
  • Green Bins may not be lined with plastic or biodegradable "plastic-like" liners. Only paper based products are allowed to wrap food scraps or to line the Green Bin(s).
  • The City will provide educational materials for each unit in the complex, and program signage to be posted within the complex.
