Garbage Tote Size Selection Information

The request period for 2024 tote size exchanges is now closed. Final 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.
