Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why was my garbage and recycling not picked up today?

Garbage and recycling must be placed curbside by 7 a.m. in order to be picked up. If garbage is mixed with your recyclables, it will not be picked up. During the winter months, residents are asked to place carts curbside by 7 a.m., but not before 5 a.m. to assist with snow plow operations. Furthermore, garbage and recycling placed on snow banks will not be picked up.

A tag system is in place for items left at the curb. View tag.

Where can I obtain a yard waste calendar?

Calendars are available online on the City website under Collection Calendar. Hard copies of the calendars are also available in the lobby of the Civic Centre - Level 2.
