Last Chance for Free Solid Waste Cart Exchanges

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Monday, December 8, 2014 – Coquitlam residents who still need to exchange their Garbage Cart or Green Cart for a different size, are reminded they have until December 31, 2014 to exchange the carts for free.

Residents who wish to increase or decrease the size of their Garbage Cart or Green Cart can call 604-927-3500 to place their request. 

Additional user fees for larger Garbage Carts still apply, as do additional costs to acquire extra Green Carts. 

Beginning in January, 2015, a $50 administrative and delivery fee will be charged for any exchanges.

If you have already contacted the City with your request, no further action is required.
