Large Item Pick-Up – If you have a large item that cannot fit into your Garbage Cart or cannot be donated, it may be eligible as part of our Large Item Pick-Up program.

If your carts are not collected by 7:30 pm, please bring them inside and contact Waste Connections of Canada in the morning to report the missed collection. Carts left at the curb overnight will attract wildlife and you risk receiving a fine of $500.
