Spring Cleanup – April 29 to May 10

During Spring Cleanup, single-family homes with curbside collection can put out an additional two cubic metres of waste on their regular garbage collection day.

What’s a cubic metre? 

It’s about six garbage bags, or one stove, or one armchair. Anything beyond the limit of two cubic metres will be left behind.

What are the rules?

  • All materials must be secured and manageable by two people. Please do not pile materials loosely
  • Only set out spring cleanup materials on your garbage collection day. Please refer to the curbside collection calendar for your pick up date.
  • Please clean up leftover debris promptly
