Extra Yard Trimmings to Be Collected this Spring

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Monday, March 16, 2015 – 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 March 30 to April 30, 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 Green Can 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.

Please 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.
