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 will be increasing from $115/tonne to $120/tonne effective September 1, 2015. Tipping fees for clean wood and yard waste will be increasing from $45/tonne to $65/tonne effective September 1, 2015. 

A choice of garbage tote sizes is now available. Click here to select your size for 2016. Some 2015 garbage tote size exchanges have not yet occurred due to a shipping delay. Exchange of small size garbage totes is anticipated in late August or early September on your garbage day. 

The residential organics collection program is underway for single family and duplex houses. Delivery of townhouse organics totes is anticipated during the week of August 24-28, 2015.
