Garbage Collection and Disposal

Residential Solid Waste Curbside Collection provides weekly pickup of waste in properly placed in municipal carts.  To find out more about the program and whether your residence is included in the service area please click here.

 

Residences outside of the collection service area are responsible for their own waste disposal. These residents can choose to utilize the services of a local contractor or dispose of their own garbage at the landfill transfer station.  A typical residential load, being the back of a pick-up, loaded with domestic garbage would be $5.  Please refer to our Landfill Tipping Fees and Regulations Bylaw No. 69, 2012 for further information on guidelines and fees associated with using the landfill.
