Participating is easy

Your kitchen container, organics cart and waste cart are all you need to participate in the curbside cart collection program.

  1. Sort your recyclables into a blue bag
  2. Sort your organics from the kitchen/house into the kitchen container, then into the green organics cart, and from the yard directly into the organics cart.
  3. Sort your remaining waste – which won’t be much – into the black waste cart.
  4. On collection day, set out the carts and recyclables before 7 am.

Please put waste in a bag, and then put the bag in your waste cart.  Your cart may not be emptied if waste is loose in the cart.

Close Lid


Make sure the lids are closed tight on your carts. This is to prevent litter and odours. If the lids are open, the carts may not be emptied.
