Recycling & Garbage

Temporary change to the collection of some items

As of November 22, 2021 until further notice:

  • Curbside glass collection for houses and duplexes and some multi-family buildings is temporarily suspended
  • Glass and foam packaging drop-off at the Eco-Centre is temporarily suspended

This is due to the unprecedented flooding and resulting transportation challenges and limited access to end markets that has impacted post-collection recycling operations. 

Residents are asked to hold on to affected materials, if they are able to, until the situation is resolved. Please check back for updates.

Find your schedule, order a new cart or report a problem

The City provides garbage collection services to residential—houses, duplexes, apartments, condos and townhomes—and commercial facilities—businesses, schools, religious buildings. We collect garbage, recycling, yard trimmings and food scraps.

Illegal dumping

Illegal dumping and littering looks ugly, is expensive to clean up and poses health and environmental risks. Illegal dumping is any waste—large appliances, couches, trash and other banned/illegal products—intentionally dumped on public or private property.

To report illegal dumping, call the Solid Waste and Recycling Division at 604-294-7972 or download the collection app to report a problem.
