Waste Collection During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Garbage and green waste collection services are operating normally at this time; however, for the safety of our contractors’ workers, Coquitlam residents are asked to continue separating their waste properly, including using the Recycle BC receptacles for recycling materials. All garbage and organic materials must be put in their designated carts.

NOTE: If you or a member of your household is sick, double-bag items such as tissues, wipes, gloves, and masks and place in your Garbage Cart.​

Large Item Pick-Up

Do you have furniture or other large household items you no longer want that can’t be donated?
Residents who receive the City’s curbside collection service can have up to four large household items collected each year (July 1 to June 30) by choosing one of the following options:

  1. Put out 4 items at the same time, once per year, or;
  2. Put out 1, 2, or 3 items at different times of the year (to a maximum of 4 per year).
