Changes coming to extra organics collection

March 15, 2023

Weekly organics collection will resume the week of April 10. Only the amount of organics waste that will fit inside the green organics cart with the lid completely closed will be collected. Bagged or other organic materials placed outside of the cart will not be collected.

What to do with extra organics:

  • NEW! Extra Organics Collection events will be held four times a year, two weeks in spring and two weeks in fall for residents to dispose of extra yard waste. Materials must be placed outside on your regular waste collection day in a brown paper lawn and yard waste bag. Materials placed out in other bags or carts will not be accepted.
  • Save extra organics materials for the following week’s collection
  • Practice grass-cycling (leaving the grass clippings on the lawn)
  • Bring organics waste to the Eco Centre, up to three cubic metres, at no charge.

Dates of Extra Organics Collection events for 2023:

  • April 24-28
  • May 29-June 2
  • October 2-6
  • Oct 30-Nov 3
