ALERT: New Province-wide COVID-19 restrictions in effect

By order and direction of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), all individuals, places of work and businesses in B.C. must significantly reduce their level of social interactions and travel to prevent the spread of COVID-19, effective now and until December 7, 2020. Please see the BC COVID-19 Resources page for full details.


Regular garbage is picked up every two weeks on Tuesdays. We alternate each week between the east and west sides of the island.

Organic refuse is picked up every week on Wednesdays, island-wide.

Please check the map and collection calendar below to find the schedule for your area.

Each property can put out ONE can of regular garbage per collection day. Any additional cans or bags require a paid decal.

All garbage cans or bags must be accessible to the garbage collector by 8:00 am on collection day. If a collection day falls on a statutory holiday, pickup will occur on the first business day after the statutory holiday unless previously arranged.
