Day and Time of Collection

Recycling and rubbish materials will be picked up on the same day each week, except when a holiday falls on or before your regular pick-up day. Then your recycling and rubbish materials will be collected 1 day later. Please place your rubbish and recycling at the tree lawn by 6 a.m. on your collection day, or preferably the night before, after 6 p.m. Place rubbish and recycling containers on opposite sides of your driveway. Please refer to the Recycling and Rubbish Routes to determine your collection day.

Place rubbish and recycling materials at the curb after 6 p.m. the night before your regular collection day, and be sure to remove from the tree lawn no later than 24 hours after collection. Your trash bags and containers must be stored in a manner that they cannot be seen from the street.
