Ward 5 official website

Weekly green cart food and yard waste collection starts this summer. This easy and convenient program allows you to dispose of all your food and yard waste in your green bin. It will be turned into nutrient-rich compost at our new indoor composting facility rather than go to waste in our landfills. 

When will you receive your carts? See below for the following delivery dates for your community:

Castleridge, August 14 - 22

Coral Springs, August 14 - 22 

Falconridge, August 14 - 22

Residents will receive everything they need to get started: 

  • Green cart - the same size as the blue and black cart. What goes into the green cart? 
  • Kitchen pail - to collect food scraps (23 cm high, 30 cm wide and 23 cm deep). Additional kitchen pails for your home can be purchased at home improvement stores or you can reuse an ice cream pail, etc.
  • Starter supply of compostable bags - to line the kitchen pail
  • Starter supply of paper yard waste bags - for extra yard waste that doesn't fit inside the cart.
  • Acceptable compostable bags and liners
