Put waste that can't go in your organics cart or recyclables cart into your garbage cart. For example, put diapers, cloth and textile materials, or any product that can't be reused or recycled in your garbage cart.
Food Isn't Garbage: 2015 Organics Ban
In 2015, Metro Vancouver will be banning organic materials, including food scraps, from disposal as garbage. For more information on the ban, please visit or view this short which explains the introduction of the new rules.
If you've had an orange sticker placed either on your garbage cart, you may have:
- incorrectly prepared your garbage,
- exceeded your weekly limit, or
- put unacceptable items out at your curbside.
Look at the circled area to find out why your garbage cart wasn't emptied. To have the cart picked up, fix the problem according to the orange sticker and put it out before your next garbage collection day.
Small, household amounts of pet waste is accepted in your garbage cart. Please ensure the waste is double bagged before placing it in your garbage cart for next collection.
