COVID-19 Update: Help Protect our Waste Collection Workers: As a precaution for the health and safety of waste collection workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the following changes have been put in effect to protect our waste collection workers:

Curbside garbage, organics and recycling pickup
Effective March 30, 2020, garbage, organics and recycling must be contained within carts. Only items contained within carts will be picked up.

Large Item Pick Up Program
In addition, effective March 30, in order to prioritize waste collection services, the Large Item Pick Up Program will be suspended until further notice.  Any large item scheduled for pickup on or after this date, will be rescheduled for pickup at a later date.

Recycling depots
Some recycling depots and disposal facilities are suspending service or reducing service hours to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Before heading to your local facility, please confirm with them that they are open and that their hours have not changed. Please refer to the Recycling Council of BC and Metro Vancouver websites for updates. Place any depot items that are accepted in curbside recycling in your recycling cart. Please avoid visiting these facilities if it is not necessary or if you are sick.

  • Organics cart: every week
