Bi-Weekly Garbage

​Safety measures for curbside collection have been put into effect to ensure the wellbeing of our waste collection operators and limit the spread of COVID-19:

  • All garbage must be bagged and sealed properly
  • Residential units may place out diapers in clear, sealed bags on their garbage day without additional bag tags
  • Exercise physical distancing with collection operators​ (click here for more info​)


​GARBAGE AND RECYCLING ARE COLLECTED BI-WEEKLY ON ALTERNATING WEEKS, while green bins are collected weekly.

  • ​Place up to two untagged bags/containers of garbage to the curb by 7 a.m. on your bi-weekly collection day (see or print off your collection schedule​).
  • See a full list what what can and cannot go in the garbage.

  Volume and weight restrictions apply

Garbage tags must be affixed to additional garbage:

  • Up to 6 tagged bags of garbage collected bi-weekly per property (for a total of 8 bags weekly per property). Find a garbage tag outlet
  • Price (per container or bag of additional garbage): $3 per tag sold in sheets of 5

Extra Bag Day:

  • 1 extra bag/container of garbage is permitted on your first collection following Christmas
