Extra Yard Trimmings To Be Collected This Spring

by Heather Escaravage |

COQUITLAM, BC, March 22, 2016 – As you begin spring clean up on your yard, the City of Coquitlam’s Seasonal Unlimited Yard Trimmings collection will help dispose of extra green waste. 

From April 4 – May 13, residents receiving solid waste collection from the City can put out any extra yard trimmings for pick up.

In addition to your Green Cart, place any extra yard trimmings at your curbside by 7:30 a.m. on your collection day. You can use kraft bags, your old garbage cans (with Green Can sticker), or bundle tree prunings that are less than three inches in diameter and no more than three feet in length.  Residents may put out yard trimmings in advance of their collection day for this program, but the materials must not contain food scraps and must not encroach upon any sidewalk, laneway or street.

Please be sure to keep any food scraps in the Green Cart and use the extra service just for yard trimmings.

Coquitlam’s Seasonal Unlimited Yard Trimmings program runs twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall. This service is only for single-family homes that pay garbage and water utility fees.
