• Garbage is collected bi-weekly (alternating with recycling). 
  • Residents supply their own garbage containers/bags. 

Garbage Basics

  • The program accepts: 
    • 1 container of garbage in bags (max. 120L) weight not exceeding 50lbs; or
    • 2 regular sized black garbage bags (65cm x 83cm) not to exceed 11.5kg (25 lbs) each. 
  • If you have additional waste, garbage tags can be obtained from Town Hall for $2.00 each.  Affix the extra tag to your garbage bag in a place visible to collectors.  Ensure the tag is affixed to the garbage bag not the container.  Each additional bag must have a extra bag tag attached.
  • Place bags or containers at the curb before 7:00 am on your collection day. 
  • Place containers as close as possible to the curb, or, where no curb exists, the edge of the road area, without obstructing vehicle or pedestrian traffic. 
  • All material placed in garbage containers must be bagged.  Loose material, even if contained within a garbage container, will not be collected. 
  • Do not include compostable or recyclable material. 
  • If you have a home with high waste disposal needs contact Tip-It Waste Solutions at (250) 428-9887 to subscribe to an additional weekly collection opposite your regular garbage collection for an additional fee.
  • If you have a home with high waste disposal needs due to a life stage (eg. diapers - child or adult, or medical waste) speak with staff at Town Hall for assistance.
