Residential garbage and recycling is collected from Tuesday to Friday.  Both recycling and garbage are picked up on the same day so please ensure you have both bins at the boulevard no later than 7:00 a.m. or your pick up might be missed.  Bins are to be set at the curb, at least 1 metre (3 feet) apart and with the wheels facing the house.  This is so the truck machinery can pick up the bins.

To find out what your regularly scheduled day is please contact the Village office.

You may search for curbside collection schedule and recycling/disposal information for thousands of items at My Waste Wizard below.

All other items should be directed to either landfill or a facility that can take it (i.e. electronics).  To find out where you can recycle almost anything visit the Recyclepedia site.

For items that cannot be recycled, the nearest Eco-Depot is located in Pritchard and is known as the South Thompson Eco-Depot (at 1595 Martin Prairie Road). It is operated by the TNRD.

Composters can be used to break down yard and garden waste plus household kitchen scraps including fruit/veggies, coffee/tea grounds, filters, egg shells, paper and grains.  Keep out meat, bones, dairy, greasy/oily food and pet waste.
