Garbage and recycling

The Waste Resource Innovation Centre administration offices and public waste drop-off are closed to the public to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

To support essential businesses, commercial waste drop-off is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If anyone in your home is self-isolating due to COVID-19 symptoms, has tested positive for COVID-19, or is isolating due to travel outside Canada please put recyclables and garbage in bags (any bag is fine) in your grey cart. Keep using your green cart as usual.
