Green cart collection schedule

Do you live in Abbeydale, Brentwood, Cougar Ridge or Southwood?

Starting the week of March 5, 2012, The City is running a Green Cart pilot program in your community. During the pilot, your collection schedule will include:

  • Weekly pick-up of green carts for food and yard waste.
  • Weekly pick up of blue carts for recycling.
  • Every second week pick-up of black carts for garbage.

For more information, view your full collection schedule for blue, black and green carts.

Did you know?

Your collectors continue to pick up trash on most statutory holidays that occur on regular collection days throughout the year. Christmas Day and New Year's Day are the only days each year that service isn't provided, enabling your collectors to be at home with their own loved ones on those days. As a result, a temporary holiday schedule is implemented, ensuring that you continue to receive reliable weekly garbage bin and recycling bin collection.​
