Extra Organics Collection Events

In the fall of 2022, the City conducted a waste collection services review and as a result, a change was made to the amount of organics waste that will be collected as part of curbside collection.

Only the amount of organics waste that will fit in a green organics cart with the lid closed will be collected. Bagged or other organic materials placed outside of the cart will not be collected. Second carts are not permitted to be placed for collection and will not be provided by the utility.

To provide an option to those residents who may have extra organics materials, the City is introducing a new event that will occur four times a year, to pick up extra organics materials.

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 that does not fit into the green organics carts. On a regular basis, extra organics waste can be taken to the Eco Centre at no charge, up to three cubic meters, or residents can save the bagged materials until the following week’s collection day.

During the week of the event, materials must be placed out on your regular waste collection day in brown paper lawn and yard waste bags. Extra materials placed out in other bags or carts will not be accepted.

Dates for the 2023 collection events:

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

Dates for 2024 events will be announced once they have been confirmed.
