One Garbage Cart and one Green Cart are provided per house. Additional Green Carts can be purchased from the City, however, additional Garbage Carts are not permitted, even if your home has a legal secondary suite.
Both Garbage and Green Carts are City property and have a unique ID printed in white lettering on the front that corresponds with the property address; mixing carts between properties can result in utility billing errors. Please write your address on the white bar of the lid to prevent mix-ups.

Garbage Cart Exchange Fees
The Garbage Cart exchange fee is $50 plus a prorated garbage utility fee (varies by month). Garbage Cart upsizes can only be requested by the homeowner because this will increase the annual garbage utility fee.
If you would like to downsize your cart to save on next year’s annual garbage utility fee, you can see in the prorated garbage utility fee chart, there is no exchange fee from February until the end of June.
Green Cart Exchanges
A $50 exchange fee applies for all Green Cart upsizes and downsizes. The size of your Green Cart does not impact the annual garbage utility fee.
Please complete the Cart Exchange Formto request a Green Cart exchange or to purchase an additional Green Cart.
City staff will contact you within 1 or 2 business days to confirm your request and arrange payment, if needed.
Additional Green Carts
A one-time fee applies depending on the size cart you choose to purchase. Additional Green Carts do not impact the annual garbage utility fee.
