Residential bulk garbage pick-up

The Engineering and Operations department undertakes one residential bulk garbage pick-up each spring, generally in the week following the May long weekend. 2020 community clean-up has been postponed due to COVID-19

The Town will pick up everything except animal carcasses, fridges, freezers, old vehicles and hazardous materials. Please observe the following:

  • Trees, branches, boards, etc. are cut to lengths less than 1.8 m (6 ft).
  • Metal, wood, grass/sod, etc. are sorted and piled separately.
  • Grass clippings and/or sod is bagged or placed in garbage container for easy handling. Bags should weigh less than 20 kilograms (45 lbs).
  • Place items for pick-up on the edge of the back alley. Do not encroach into the laneway. If you do not have a back alley items may be placed in front of your house. 
  • Clearly label any items that are not to be picked up, or remove those items from the back alley.
