Garbage and Recycling
Winter Curbside Collection
When winter conditions such as snow and icy roads affect curbside collection services, we ask residents to ensure their carts and recycling containers are still visible, and leave garbage, organics, and recycling out for the day. The contractor will do their best to pick up material before the end of the day.
Icy roads particularly affect recycling pick up in the
Township’s rural areas. If your recycling was not picked up this week, bring it
back in and put it out the following week on your collection day. Properties in
areas where recycling was not picked up can put out any extra material in clear
plastic bags, sorted by material type, for collection the following week.
There are a few easy ways you can find out if you should bring materials back in at the end of the day and put it out for the following week:
- Visit tol.ca/garbage and sign up for a weekly collection reminder and be notified by email or phone
- View an updated list of collection delays at sierrawaste.ca/blog
- Call 604.530.3939 for updates
Due to the dropping temperatures, organic waste may freeze inside carts or cans. Collection staff make every effort to collect all contents, but in cases where this is not possible, we ask residents to please be patient and wait for the next collection day. To avoid materials freezing inside your cart/can:
- Line the bottom and/or sides with newspaper or yard trimmings bags
- Wrap food scraps in newspaper
- Don’t overfill; tightly packed material can become stuck together. Keep contents loose.
The holidays will affect your collection days this year.

New Cart Collection Program
Garbage and Green Carts for the new cart collection program have now been delivered. If your property is within our garbage collection area and you did not receive carts, call 604.532.3533 or email email@example.com.
A big problem needs a bold statement! The #idiot campaign was developed to
bring attention to the problem of illegal dumping. The word idiot stands
for illegal dumper in our township. The campaign aims to increase
awareness of proper disposal options and ways to report illegal dumping, as
well as to warn offenders of penalties.
Set Out and Collection Times
Garbage carts, Green Carts, and recycling should be curbside by 7:30am or it may not be collected. It is not recommended to have garbage curbside before 8:00pm the night before. To see a collection calendar for your property, type your address below.
