New Waste Collection Zones and Pick-Up Dates

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Tuesday, June 24, 2014 – With the changeover to Coquitlam’s new automated waste collection system starting the week of July 1, some Coquitlam residents in single-family homes may also have new collection zones and pick-up dates.

Residents can find their new collection zone – which indicates their curbside collection day – in the 2014/2015 Curbside Collection Calendar, which is being delivered with their new Garbage Cart and Green Cart. 

The most convenient way to keep track of pick-up days is with the online Curbside Collection tool. Use the tool to view a personalized collection schedule and set up a reminder to receive a text message, phone call, email or tweet before your collection day. You can also upload your personalized Curbside Collection Schedule to your online calendar of choice – iCal, Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook. 

Visit www.coquitlam.ca/curbsidecollection and type your home address in the search box. You can also download the Coquitlam Curbside Collection App for free from the App Store or Google Play store.

Until July 1, you should continue to use your current garbage bins and to put out your garbage and recycling on your standard pick-up dates. After your last pick-up day in the last week of June, you can start using your new Garbage Cart and Green Cart.

Cart delivery will continue until the end of this week.
