Bi-weekly Garbage Collection
Beginning Feburary 2021, garbage collection will be bi-weekly, or every other week.
For the purpose of curbside pick-up, the Municipality is divided into 5 zones with pick-up occurring in one of the zones each day Monday through Friday. Each zone is further split in 2 for alternating garbage collection. On the collection calendar this is reflected as Garbage Week 1 and Garbage Week 2.
To determine what week your garbage will be picked up please refer to the collection schedule and calendar.
Step 1 - Find your collection day.
Step 2 - Find your garbage week.
Step 3 - Review the collection calendar for you schedule (colour coded).
If your address lies within Monday Pick-up (Pink on the Collection Calendar) and Garbage Week 1, you would follow Week 1 of the collection calendar. Week 1 on the schedule you would put out your garbage, green bin and paper/fibre recycling. Week 2 on the schedule you would put out your green bin and plastics/container recycling. There would be NO garbage pick up.

- Waste is to be placed close to the edge of the road between 7 p.m. the night before and 7 a.m. on the day of collection.
- During winter months,set your bins &/or bags on the cleared portion of your driveway and not on snowbanks.
- All solid waste placed curbside for collection (10-bag max.) must have a bag tag attached.
- Organics collection (green bin) is weekly. There is no bag tag required.
The cost of a bag tag is applied directly to the cost of collecting and disposing of solid waste. The more you take advantage of the green bin and recycle, the less solid waste you will produce, reducing your bag tag costs.
Residents are also able to take their solid waste to the Waste Transfer Station themselves. Waste must either be properly tagged with bag tags or material will be weighted and charged accordingly.
