Green Cart

Extra yard trimmings may be put out in paper bags, or 80 L cans marked with a “Green Can”* or “Yard Trimmings” decal. Twigs and branches can be bundled using garden string or twine (no wire, nylon rope, or plastic strapping).

  • Maximum branch size: 1 m (3 ft) in length and 7.5 cm (3 in) in diameter

Additional Green Carts are not available, with exception of properties with an authorized secondary suite, coach house, or temporary mobile home, who may apply for a second (80L) Green Cart for their property. Administration fees will apply unless the request is during the dedicated exchange period. Contact our Cart Information Line at 604-532-3533.

*Free Green Can decals are available at Township facilities


Most properties can avoid additional fees by maximizing use of their Green Cart and recycling programs. 60-70% of household waste can be recycled or composted. If your property is still generating too much garbage for your cart, you can choose from the following options:

1) Extra garbage stickers

Properties that occasionally produce extra garbage may purchase extra garbage stickers. Excess garbage must display an Extra Garbage sticker per bin or bag in order to be collected. The stickers can be purchased from one of the facilities listed below at a fee of $3.00 per sticker.

Important Note: Extra garbage will only be collected on the weeks designated for garbage collection.

2) Additional Carts

Properties that regularly produce excess garbage may obtain up to two (2) additional garbage carts for their property. Additional fees will be applied to your annual tax notice. A $50 administration fee will also apply per cart delivered.

Annual collection fees are dependent on the size and number of garbage carts you have. Properties that produce the least waste will pay less on their annual taxes. Single family homes that use the standard 240L size carts will pay about the same as previous years. If you exchange for a 120L garbage cart, the annual collection fee on your property tax will reduce by $75. If you add additional garbage carts, annual fees will increase depending on the size you choose.

Additional carts and exchanges can be requested online at or by phone at 604-532-3533. All requests will be subject to a $50 administration fee per cart delivered or exchanged.
