Collection takes place on Mondays and may take up to one week to complete. To determine your bulk collection day, please refer to pages 11-16 of the 2021 Garbage and Recycling Guide, or use the street selector tool below.

If you require collection at any other time, you may avail of our pick-up service, which requires a prepaid fee of $25 for each service. To book a service, call 748-1016.
