Bulk Garbage

Prescheduled bulk garbage collection takes place in April, May, September and October.

During June, July and August, residents can request a maximum of two bulk collections free of charge. These collections take place on Mondays and are by appointment only. To schedule a pick up, residents must submit a bulk garbage application.

If you require collection at any other time, you may avail of our pick up service, which requires a prepaid fee of $45 for each service.

Bulk Garbage Application

To ensure maximum efficiency, the City is divided into five zones for bulk garbage collection. Each zone receives collection on a specific day, as indicated below. Please note that bulk garbage collection may take up to one week to complete. You may also bring your bulk items to Robin Hood Bay.
