Curbside collection is provided to all eligible premises (urban single family residences and multi-unit residential properties with 4 or less units).
Collection alternates weekly between waste (Black Cart) and organics (Green Cart). When setting out yard waste, please space bags 1 m from your full Green Cart.
Your Black Cart collects non-recyclable packaging, hygiene products, bagged pet waste (feces, litter, and bedding), bagged cold wood ashes, incandescent and halogen light bulbs, used vacuum cleaner bags, and soiled aluminum foil.
Your Black Cart does not collect cardboard, compostables, recyclables, household hazardous waste (HHW), or e-waste.
Your Green Cart collects only compostable waste: raw or cooked meat, fish and dairy products, garden & yard waste, and food soiled paper (pizza box). Other items include human & pet hair, sawdust & wood shavings, coffee grounds & filters, loose tea & fiber tea bags, eggshells, shellfish including the shells, and more.

Extra yard waste? You can place additional approved compostable bags out at the curb with your Green Cart. Bags must weigh 25 kg or less each and be placed 1 meter from your full green cart in a single pile.
