Update on Cart Delivery
With such a large geographical area, some homes may still be waiting for cart delivery after November 1. In the interim, if your household has not received carts, please place your materials at the curb using your blue boxes and containers as you've done for years. Our new contractor will conduct manual collection for select homes for a limited time.
Setting out your cart
Have your materials at the road/curb by 7 a.m. of your new collection day. Collection times may continue to change for some time while new routes are optimized
Place carts on a level surface within eight feet of the traveled portion of the road, avoiding low hanging branches
Rule of 2: Set out carts
2 feet apart, with
2 feet between your cart and any other objects
Point the arrows on the carts towards the street and handles towards your house
Do not over-stuff carts, fill loosely, ensure lid is fully closed
Do not use bungee cords or other items to keep the cart lids closed

Public Information Centre Recording
On July 21, 2021 the County hosted a virtual Public Information Centre (PIC) for residents to learn more about the County's new automated cart collection which begins on November 1, 2021. An FAQ page has already been created to answer many of the questions that our residents might have.
