Cart Size Options

Garbage Carts are available in 3 sizes: 120L, 240L and 360L. Most residents have the medium standard size of 240L. When you increase the size of your garbage cart, it will increase your annual garbage utility fee. If you decrease the size of your garbage cart, this will result in a savings to your annual garbage utility fee. If you would like to change the size of your garbage cart, there is an exchange fee that you may have to pay in person at City Hall in the Engineering Department. Please call 604-927-4306 for more information and current exchange fees prior to visiting City Hall.
