2019 Collection Schedule
Please note that organics collection is every other week during the winter months
Collection starts at 7:00 am so your carts and blue bags must in place by then. If you are late, your carts may not be emptied that week.
For information about the best way to dispose of any household item including hazardous waste or e-waste.
Sorting your organics material into your green cart will help our community achieve the 65 per cent waste diversion target. Reduce odours in your organic cart by rinsing it weekly. You can layer newspaper, soiled cardboard, or leaves to help absorb moisture. Sprinkling a small amount of baking soda or powdered lime can also help prevent odours.
Your organic material is taken to an organics processing facility and converted into high quality compost for agriculture and other environmental uses.
It is best to place your organics loose in the cart. The only exception is pet waste, which must be bagged in an approved 100 per cent compostable bag.
The only approved bags are see-through 100 per cent compostable, marked by the manufacturer with both the U.S. and Canadian compostable logos. Residents can also use brown paper compostable bags in their green bins.
Note: No plastic bags, including thin grocery produce bags, can be put into the organics cart.
