Curbside Waste and Recycling Collection

Effective Monday, January 2, 2017, curbside waste and recycling collection will occur for the entire Municipality. Waste and recycling will be collected simultaneously by Waste Management of Canada Corporation starting at 8:00 a.m. on Mondays only, including all statutory holidays with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year's Day should they fall on a Monday. 


Those residences on private or unmaintained roadways will be required to place their waste and recyclable materials at the nearest intersection of a serviced roadway. 


Those residences on a seasonal roadway will be required to place their waste and recyclable materials at the nearest intersection of a serviced roadway during the winter season. 



  • The same truck will collect both waste and recycling. The truck will have two (2) separate compartments. 
  • Two (2) waste bag limit - bags cannot weigh more than 22 kg/50 lb each.
  • For waste and recycling not set out properly, a sticker will be placed indicating the reason for no collection.
  • If roads are closed or unsafe for travel due to weather conditions, collection may not be performed. Therefore, please retain your waste and recyclables until the following Monday for collection or visit a Waste Disposal Site. 

Missed waste collections are upsetting, but there is usually a reason why material was not collected as expected. To ensure your waste is collected, please ensure it is:

  • in an approved container 
  • placed at the curb prior to 8:00 a.m.
  • Not hidden behind a vehicle, snow bank or other obstruction
  • free of prohibited content (any material other than household waste will not be collected)
  • within the limit of two (2) bags
  • within the limit of 22 kg (50 lbs)

All accepted recyclable  materials can be placed into one (1) Blue Box at the curbside or at the Municipality's Waste Disposal Sites' Recycling Facilities. Recyclables are then transferred to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF). This single-stream recyclable processing uses separation technologies specifically designed for a mixed recyclable stream.

Accepted recyclable materials:

  • Glass: clear or coloured jars. Rinse out containers and remove lids.
  • Cardboard: corrugated, box board, boxed beverage containers. No Styrofoam, plastic bag liners or staples.

  • Visit a Waste Disposal Site during regular hours of operation. Residents are permitted to dispose of two (2) bags of waste free of charge. See above for Waste Disposal Sites' locations and hours of operation.
  • Ask a neighbour to place your materials at the curbside on Monday morning.
