Extra Organics Collection Events

Extra organics collection events are held four times a year - twice in the spring and twice in the fall - to provide an opportunity for residents to dispose of extra yard waste that does not fit into their green organics carts.

The collection dates for 2024 are:

  • April 29 - May 3
  • May 27 - 31
  • September 30 - October 4
  • November 4 - 8

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.

Throughout the rest of the year, only the amount of organics waste that will fit in a green organics cart with the lid closed will be collected. Bagged or other organics 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. Extra organics waste (up to three cubic metres) can also be taken to the Eco Centre at no charge, or residents can save the bagged materials until the following week’s collection day.
