Black Cart Garbage

The Black Cart Garbage service is available to all single family households.

 What you can expect from us

  1. The City provides bi-weekly collections in winter and weekly collections in summer.

 How you can help us

Please remember to check your collection schedule and review the following information to ensure your cart is collected:

  1. The cart is placed out for collection prior to 7 a.m. on your scheduled pickup day.
  2. There is at least 1.2 meters (4 feet) of clearance around all sides of the cart.
  3. The garbage is bagged and inside the cart, and the lid is closed.
  4. No prohibited materials, hazardous waste or liquids.
  5. Review “What goes in your black cart?”
  6. New cart requests can be submitted once residents are living at their new address so the cart can be stored on the property immediately to avoid theft and bylaw infractions.
