Garbage, recycling, and organic waste collection services

We continue to collect garbage, organics, and recycling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please keep a distance of at least two metres from our collection crews and wait until after the truck departs to bring your emptied carts back in to help everyone stay safe.

Disposing hygiene products during the COVID-19 pandemic

To help protect worker safety, be sure to put used tissues, hygiene products, personal protective equipment and medical waste in secure bags before putting them in your garbage (and keep them out of your blue box).
