My garbage or green waste wasn’t collected today. What do I do?

Sometimes snow will prevent garbage trucks from accessing certain streets.

In the event of hazardous road conditions due to snow and/or ice, there may be delays or a temporary cancellation of waste collection. If garbage, green cart and/or recycling has not been collected by 7 pm, please bring it in for the night and place it out again at the curbside after 5:30 am the next morning. If it still isn’t collected, please bring them in again and wait until your next regularly scheduled collection day. For instant alerts regarding service disruptions and delays, sign up for phone, email or text alerts at the Collection Calendar and Guidelines page or by contacting the City at 604-927-3500.

You can also receive alerts by downloading the Coquitlam Curbside Collection app available in your App or Google Play store. Recycling in Coquitlam is a free service provided by Recycle BC. Questions regarding recycling collection should be directed to GFL Environmental (formerly Smithrite) at 604-529-4011 or email GLF Environmental.
