Garbage & Waste Diversion

The District of Squamish provides a residential curbside collection program operated by Carney's Waste Systems. Opportunities for recycling are also available at Carney's Recycling Centre and the Squamish Landfill.

Landfill tipping fees for Municipal Solid Waste and Demolition/Construction waste increased from $115/tonne to $120/tonne on September 1, 2015. Tipping fees for clean wood and yard waste increased from $45/tonne to $65/tonne on September 1, 2015. 

A choice of garbage tote sizes is now available. Click here to select your size for 2016. Carney's Waste Systems is currently conducting garbage tote size exchanges. If you are waiting for an exchange please leave your garbage tote curbside until the evening on garbage days.

The residential organics collection program is underway for single family and duplex houses and some townhouses. If you receive curbside collection from the District but have not received an organics tote, please contact Carney's Waste Systems at 604-892-5604.
