Bulk Garbage

Prescheduled bulk garbage collection will begin in May and June 2024

Collection takes place on Mondays and may take up to one week to complete. To determine your bulk collection day, please use the street selector tool below.

If you require collection at any other time, you may request a special pick-up service (Mondays only), which requires a pre-paid fee of $25 for each service. To book a service, please call 748-1000 to pay the fee and arrange a pick-up date.

Bulk items must not be placed on the curb until the evening before the scheduled pick-up day.  Residents also have the option to store their items until the next annual free collection, or to bring their items to the Robin Hood Bay landfill, 340 East White Hills Road.

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.
