Waste Disposal

Waste Connections is having some truck issues today (August 4th) and is unable to complete today’s collection route. If your garbage/recycling has not been collected as scheduled, we recommend bringing it in overnight. Please ensure that it is placed curbside tomorrow (August 5th) by 7am for collection in the morning. Thank you for your understanding.

Recent global events have led us to affirm our commitment to recognizing, renouncing, and addressing all forms of discrimination, ethnic oppression and racism within our communities, our surrounding region and across our country.
