There will be no waste collection on Monday, September 4. Waste collection will be one day later that week. Check your waste calendar for details. All Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) will also be closed on Monday, September 4. They will reopen for regular operating hours on Tuesday, September 5.

This pick up is also in an exemption period. During an exemption period there is no maximum amount of acceptable garbage you can put on the curb. Garbage bag tags are not required during exemption periods.

Each excess garbage bag cannot:

  • Weigh more than 20 kg (44 lbs).
  • Be larger than 66 cm (26 in) wide and 90 cm (35 in) high.
  • Be smaller than 30 cm (12 in) wide and 30 cm (12 in) high.

Be sure to put your extra garbage out on your garbage collection day, not on your recycling collection day. Excess garbage left at the curb on your recycling collection day will not be collected.

Place your excess garbage close to – but not on top of – your garbage cart, leaving at least 1 m (3 ft.) of clear space between your extra garbage item(s) and your cart.

Your garbage cart and your extra bagged garbage may be collected by separate trucks at different times on your collection day. Leave your garbage at the curb until 8 p.m.  If it is not collected by 8 p.m., report a missed collection.
