Curbside garbage collection takes place weekly, usually on the same day of the week (check your Waste Collection Calendar for holiday exceptions).
Collection of recyclables at the curb takes place every other week on your waste collection day. Check your Waste Collection Calendar for your scheduled recycling days. Recyclables are picked up by Recool Canada.
