Solid Waste - Garbage, Organics and Recycling

The Town's contractor, Emterra Environmental, provides an automated curbside collection for eligible households.


  • Set carts out for collection by 8 a.m. on your collection day - not the night before.
  • After your carts have been emptied, if the collection truck has left them in a different location, please use that location the next time you put your carts out for collection, as that is the preferred location. If you have any questions, please call the Town Contractor, Emterra, at 250-336-8066.
