HOW TO USE CARTS FOR PICK UP ON YOUR COLLECTION DAY
- FRONT STREET PICKUP: Most residential garbage collection is street-front pickup (rather than alleys/lanes). There are some residential locations where street-front is not feasible and exceptions will be made and communicated to those residences by City Staff
- Place carts out for collection no earlier than 5:00am and no later than 7:00am on your collection day
- All regular household garbage may be placed inside the cart.
- Waste must be bagged and tied. This will prevent garbage from becoming airborne as well as help keep your cart clean. Anything that is placed inside the cart must be able to fall freely when dumped.
- Do not over-fill your cart.
- Lid must be closed completely.
- Ensure 1 metre clearance around the entire cart.
- In order to prevent odours and avoid attracting bears & other wildlife, residents will still need to securely store their garbage collection carts until their neighbourhood collection day. Please ensure that you:
- Wash your cart out regularly with a mild non-toxic detergent.
- Place your garbage into garbage bags inside your cart
- Keep the lid closed at all times.
- The maximum weight load for a cart is 59kgs (130lbs). Please keep in mind that excessive weight in your garbage cart could result in damage to the cart.
