Curbside Comes to Your Neighbourhood

Cover for page

With the free Curbside notification system you’ll never miss a garbage day again.

Enter your address below and you're ready to go. Curbside allows you to:

• Access and download your customized garbage and recycling schedule online

• Get collection day reminders via email, phone call, text message, Twitter and iCal

• Stay up-to-date on any changes to schedules, due to weather or other issues

Waste collection is an ever-rising cost for the City. In 2020 the budget allocated approximately $626,000 for the service, a 10.4 percent increase over 2019 when the cost was $567,000. The Curbside notification system, as well as two automated trucks, changes to routes and schedules and an organics pilot project have made the City more efficient in our solid waste collection.

Residents are asked to have their garbage and recycling at the curb by 7:30 am. This allows our Public Works staff to complete solid waste collection in a timely manner, and helps reduce animal and human conflicts.
