Garbage Tote Size Selection Information

The request period for 2024 tote size exchanges is now open. 2024 fees will be determined as part of the 2024 Budget process.

 There is a $50 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.

  • *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 2024 Utilities bill will reflect your new solid waste fee (based on the tote size change) and the $50 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.
