Garbage & Waste Diversion

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

Residential curbside collection customers have the option to select a garbage tote size that best matches your needs. The garbage tote exchanges occur once each year. The deadline to select a larger or smaller tote size for 2019 has now passed. The deadline to request a tote size change for 2020 is September 30, 2019.
