All garbage, recycling and organics/yard waste totes shall be accessible to the collector between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the specific collection days.
Household garbage is to be put in the totes with grey lids and recycling in the totes with blue lids, and all organic (food and yard waste) waste in the tote with the green lid, provided by Carney’s. To obtain a tote or to report a broken tote, please contact Carney’s Waste Systems at 604.892.5675.
Organics and recycling are collected biweekly, alternating with garbage collection, Please view the schedule for your area.
Organics, recycling and garbage are collected from the totes using a truck which automatically picks up and empties the totes into the truck.
*PLEASE NOTE: Delays of your curbside residential collection may occur due to road closures, construction, or winter snow or icy conditions. Carney's Waste Systems staff will do their best to ensure regular collection schedules are maintained, however, if we are unable to service your container on your regular collection day, collection will take place on the following day, or as soon as weather and road conditions allow.
Residents whose garbage, organics or recycling has not been serviced can put their containers out the following morning or leave the container out overnight, however, if left out overnight, garbage and organics containers must have the lid secured with the latches to prevent bears from accessing contents. Unlock the latches the following morning.
Tote safety: If you need to reach into your tote for any reason, please ensure that the tote will not roll away from you and that the lid is opened fully.
Concerned about odours? Please view the odour control tips.
