Garbage Tote Size Selection

The deadline to request to change your garbage tote size for 2020 is September 30, 2019. Exchanges will be made in the spring of 2020.

There is a $28 fee to change your tote size.

Solid Waste Utility fees vary based on which garbage tote size you choose. There is no additional cost for recycling and organics collection – these costs are included in the Solid Waste Utility fee regardless of which size garbage tote you choose.

  • Size changes for garbage totes only occur once a year. If you want to change the size of your garbage tote, you must complete the form by the deadline above to ensure that your tote will be exchanged in the following Spring. 
  • *Note: The form must be completed once for each dwelling unit that receives service. If there are two suites in a house, the property owner must submit the form two times.
  • Change requests cannot be accepted by telephone. Only property owners, including landlords, can request a change. Your 2020 Utilities bill will reflect your new solid waste fee (based on the tote size change) and the $28 change fee.

  • Organics and recycling tote size changes cannot be accommodated through the District of Squamish Utilities Fees at this time.

  • Please visit our Tote Exchange and Solid Waste Fees Frequently Asked Questions for more information. 

*2020 Annual Fees will be determined as part of the 2020 Budget process.
